Description
Summary:The carbon nanotubes (CNTs) play an important role in nanotechnology research today because the CNT have outstanding properties. Many substrates can be used to fabricate carbon nanotube forests (CNT forests); however, it is important that the desired structure is achieved on a conductive substrate, and for these reasons, carbon nanotube forests have been synthetized on a titanium substrate in this research. Environmental protection is highly discussed nowadays, therefore it is necessary to be able to produce CNT forests with less energy investment and costeffectively. For these reasons, we used dip-coating method, which is a simple process and without heat-treatments step to save energy in achieving the forest structure. Therefore, this research uses a dip-coating method to form a catalyst layer on the surface of the substrate, and to investigate the effect of heat-treatment of the substrate to produce CNT forests directly on the titanium substrate.
