Investigators at Dalian University of Technology Report Findings in Fullerenes (Controlled synthesis of carbon nanocoils and carbon nanotubes on common paper substrates)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Data detailed on Fullerenes have been presented. According to news originating from Dalian, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "The commercially available copy papers and pure papers have been adopted to synthesize carbon nanomaterials."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the Dalian University of Technology, "It is found that carbon nanocoils (CNCs) are efficiently synthesized on the copy paper substrates using Fe-2(SO4)(3)/SnCl2 catalyst by a thermal chemical vapor deposition method, while only carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are obtained on the pure paper substrate using the same process. It is evidenced that the particles of calcium carbonate existing in copy paper aggregate catalyst and adsorb more sulfur elements which promote the growth of CNCs."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In addition, CNCs can successfully grow out from the pure paper by adding calcium carbonate."
