Preparation and diagnosis of carbon nanotubes from industrial cotton residues by using green chemistry technology
Keywords:Green chemistry, carbon nanotubes, activated carbon, cotton residues
Carbon nanotubes were prepared using cotton fiber residues (obtained from the General Cotton Industries Company) using NaOH, the material prepared was diagnosed in several ways : X-ray spectrum (XRD), atomic force microscope(AFM) and scanner electronic microscope (SEM), the results show that granular size of the nanomaterial is low than 50 nm, and the mean of diameters of these particles is (77.16) nm and the highest height of nanoparticles in the sample under examination is (30.42) nm and the size of these is distributed from 1-5 nanometres, and the material prepared is of wormlike threads form with cavities on the surface which indicates that the fibers have a large surface area and a wide pore mean.
