Researchers from University of Technology Report New Studies and Findings in the Area of Boron (Deposition of boron doped diamond and carbon nanomaterials on graphite foam electrodes)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Research findings on Boron are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting from Bratislava, Slovakia, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Boron doped diamond (BDD) has remarkable physical and chemical properties, that makes it an attractive material for electrochemical applications. In this study, deposition process of BDD on porous carbon foam electrodes was performed by HFCVD method."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Technology, "After depositions, the substrates were not homogenously covered by the BDD thin film only. Depending on the deposition temperature, foam porosity and distance from heated filaments, different carbon nanomaterials were synthesized. The boron doped diamond, graphite nanosheets, carbon nanowalls and its composites occurred on the foams outer and inner surfaces. Two new observed types of carbon structures, the carbon nanowalls - boron doped diamond composite and graphite nanotips are analyzed and described. Analyses were made by SEM and Raman spectroscopy."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The influence of deposition conditions on the growth process is discussed."
