Abstract
A combinatorial technique was used to determine the optimum catalyst combin ation for the efficient synthesis of carbon nanotubes (CNTs). The morpholog y, length and yield of CNTs greatly differ depending on the catalyst combin ations. Among 20 different compositions of mixed catalysts, CNTs of good st ructure were obtained when the volume ratios of the three precursor solutio ns-Co(NO3)(2), Ni(NO3)(2) and Fe(NO3)(3)-were 4 : 2 : 4 (island #7) and 1 : 5 : 4 (island # 18).
