Synthesis of single walled nanotubes in fluidised beds


This project involves synthesis of single walled nanotubes in fluidised beds.


Professor Andrew Harris.

Research location

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Program type



Currently the majority of synthesis products from FBCVD are mixtures of multiwalled nanotubes (MWNT), carbon fibres, single walled nanotubes (SWNT), and amorphous carbon. Mixtures of products are more difficult to separate and are therefore less valuable. Using a high throughput catalyst screening technique we are identifying reaction conditions which will produce SWNTs with specific properties, at high yield and selectivity.
