Abstract:The use of organic-organometallic block copolymers as catalyst precursors for templated carbon nanotube (CNT) growth (see Figure) is demonstrated for the first time. A thin film of block copolymer was treated with O2 plasma to produce ordered iron-containing catalyst nanoparticle arrays, which are efficient catalysts for CNT growth. This approach allows control of catalyst domain size and spacing by tailoring block copolymer composition.
