One-Step Chemical Synthesis of Graphitic Structures Including Carbon Onions, Carbon Nanotubes, and Carbon Dots and Templated-Growth of Carbon Nanotubes Under Aqueous Conditions
Researchers at Duke University have developed a method for synthesizing graphitic structures including carbon onions, carbon nanotube-like structures, carbon dots, and polyhedral structures in aqueous suspension at ambient temperature and pressure under inert gas atmosphere. Wet chemical reactions were carried out using carbon sources, such as, carbon-based nanoparticles, aromatic or cyclic hydrocarbons, and transition metals.
