The direct spinning of CNT aerogels from a FC-CVD reactor starts from simple precursors for Fe, S, and C. Recent studies using aerosol sampling methods have shown insights into the chemistry driving the process. The product is mainly synthesised from pyrolytic carbon species, not the C precursor...

Motivation for Research

Motivation for current research Through 2010-2011 the direct spinning process technology was transferred to Tortech Nanofibers Ltd who began to develop the technology towards a commercial process. When we started to think about scale-up, we needed to work out how to make the right catalyst...
