Chirality control for predominant metallic or semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes prepared using a mild etchant

Author affiliations

Abstract

Highly oriented metallic and semiconducting SWCNTs were synthesized with different carrier gas compositions and etchants by the floating catalyst chemical vapor deposition method. The addition of acetone as an etchant resulted in metallic nanotubes. The acetone acted as both an additional carbon source and etching agent for carbon nanotube nucleation.
