High temperature selective growth of single-walled carbon nanotubes with a narrow chirality distribution from a CoPt bimetallic catalyst

Abstract

Chirality-controlled synthesis of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is a prerequisite for their practical applications in electronic and optoelectronic devices. We report here a novel bimetallic CoPt catalyst for the selective growth of high quality SWCNTs with a narrow chirality distribution at relatively high temperatures of 800 °C and 850 °C using atmospheric pressure alcohol chemical vapor deposition. The addition of Pt into a Co catalyst forms a CoPt alloy and significantly reduces the diameters of the as-grown SWCNTs and narrows their chirality distributions.
