    LOW TEMPERATURE HYDROTHERMAL SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF CARBON NANOTUBES
    B S Supriya*, P Nagaraja, K Byrappa

    Carbon nanotubes were synthesized via carbon suboxide disproportionation using iron as a catalyst at a low temperature of 160°C. In this procedure carbon suboxide used as a carbon source, through disproportionation free carbon clusters are formed, after the hydrothermal treatment the free carbon clusters developed as a nanotubes using iron catalyst. The reaction is as follows diethyl malonate dehydrates to produce carbon suboxide in the presence of phosphorous pentoxide and carbon suboxide disproportionate to carbon and carbon dioxide. The obtained product was characterized using FE-SEM, XRD, FTIR and Raman spectroscopy.
