Carbon nanofiber growth via dehalogenation of tetrachloroethylene

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Ordered carbonaceous growth typically requires high-energy methods such as arc discharge or decomposition of hydrocarbon-based precursors using laser, plasma, or thermolytic techniques. For the latter technique, temperature regimes on the order of 600-1000 °C are most common; we have reported the growth of carbon nanofibers (CNFs) at room temperature using halogenated precursors. Herein, we will describe a mechanistic proposal involving the dehalogenation of tetrachloroethylene en route toward CNF growth.
