Abstract

A new technique of fluidized-bed-metal-organic chemical vapour deposition (FB-MOCVD) was discussed. The technique was developed as a one step method to prepare highly dispersed metal supported catalysts for carbon nanotubes. The metal-supported catalysts obtained by FB-MOCVD were characterized with various techniques including SEM-EDX, XRD, and nitrogen isothermal adsorption. The advantages of FB-MOCVD method includes elimination of solid-liquid separation and subsequent operations of drying.
