Large-scale production and purification of single-walled carbon nanotubes
Single Walled Nanotubes were produced in large scale by Laser Vaporization with maximum yields of 50%. Optimization experiments give relative yields of (Nickel Cobalt (1:1 atomic % each)) = (Nickel Tungsten (1:1)) $>$ ...
Surface and coordination chemistry related to GaAs
The vapor phase structures of Al(tBU)3 and Ga(tBU)3 have been investigated by gas phase electron diffraction and consist of planar three-coordinate monomers. Salient structural parameters (ra) include: Al-C = 2.005(3) A, ...
The metal-catalyzed etching and growth of diamond
Metals have been used in the past to grow diamond in high temperature/high pressure reactors. In our research we used metals to grow diamond at low pressures and low temperatures. A vertical vibratory hot-walled reactor ...
Novel chemistry of elemental carbon: Graphite, fullerenes and nanotubes
The goal of this work was to examine the chemistry that one can do with various fluorinated forms of elemental carbon. As a prelude to the experimental worked out for this thesis, a brief discussion of the various allotropic ...
