Abstract

The compound {Fe2(CO)6[µ-S2C6H2(OH)2]} is organized by H-bond interactions on graphite and SiO2 surfaces as micron-length nanofibres. Thermal degradation of these fibres adsorbed on SiO2 leads to a very homogeneous surface filled with Fe2O3 nanoparticles (ca. 2.5 nm diameter) suitable to produce few-walled carbon nanotubes laying on a clean surface.
