Preparation of homogeneous titania coating on the surface of MWNT

Preparation of homogeneous and stable inorganic coatings on the surface of multi-wall carbon nanotubes (CNTs) was studied. Precursor compounds such as titanium (IV) bromide and titanium (IV) chloride were used to cover the surface of CNTs under either solvent-free or solution conditions. As-prepared titania layers were characterized by transmission, scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction techniques. Results revealed that homogenous coverage can be achieved in a controllable way. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
