In this study, acetylene gas was delivered to a catalyst network consists of NaCl-support and Zn nanoparticles in a temperature range of 500-700°C by means of a chemical vapor deposition (CVD). A principle feature that delineated this CVD study from prior studies lay, first in the method used to support the catalyst and secondly the choice of the catalyst metal. In particular, NaCl was deliberately retained and exploited in subsequent manipulations for the reason that it performed remarkably well as a support medium. The catalytic activity of Zn towards production of CNT/CNFs appeared to be promoted as a result of using molten ionic substrate.
