Synthesis of Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotube by using Ethanol as a Carbon Source

The challenges associated with synthesis carbon nanotubes are still the main causes [1,2] which limit the use in many application [3,4] in spite of the amazing physiochemical properties and variety of types of single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), few walled carbon nanotubes (FWCNTs), and multi walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) [5]. The prediction for the near future is the possibility of removing all the obstacles that prevent or hinder the manufacturing process of this carbon-polymer distinguished in all the specifications [6]. The methods which commonly depend on the synthesis of carbon nanotubes include arc discharge [7], chemical vapor deposition [8,9], and laser ablation [10] which represent physical, chemical, or miscellaneous methods. Chemical vapor deposition techniques are the simplest, cheapest, and most flexible methods as compared with the other types for this purpose [11]. This technique generally depends on making a precipitation process at high temperatures for the clouds of precursor, vapor which mainly contains an appropriate percentage of carbon atoms.
