The Role of Molybdenum as Catalyst Promoter in the Growth of Carbon Nanotubes (pp. 201-214) $100.00

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have attracted the fancy of many scientists worldwide due to their small dimensions, strength and remarkable properties that make them a very unique material of a whole range of promising applications. Many methods have been proposed to synthesize CNTs of which catalytic growth appears to be the most promising method for high yield synthesis. Catalyst plays a crucial role in the catalytic growth method and bimetallic catalysts have proven their competency.
The compatibility of the catalyst components, including the active metal, promoter and support, is indeed unique. Transition metals, such as Co, Ni or Fe, are commonly used to catalyze the growth of CNTs. Catalyst promoters, such as Fe, Co, Mn, Mg, Al, Ni, Mo, Cu, Pd, Pt, etc., have been reported to be effective. Promoter can either alter the morphology of the active metal to suit the growth of CNTs or contribute in enhancing or weakening metal-support interaction of the catalyst system, indirectly participating in the catalytic growth of CNTs.
Among all the potential catalyst promoters, molybdenum is one of the most widely studied promoters in the growth of CNTs via a catalytic method. In this article, the role played by the molybdenum in governing the growth of CNTs is revealed. In particular,
the influences of molybdenum component on the yield and morphology of the CNTs are reported and discussed.
