HERBST, Marcelo Hawrylak; MACEDO, Maria Iaponeide Fernandes  and  ROCCO, Ana Maria. Technology of carbon nanotubes: trends and perspectives of a multidisciplinary area. Quím. Nova [online]. 2004, vol.27, n.6, pp.986-992. ISSN 0100-4042.

An overview of the properties of carbon nanotubes is presented as a function of the structural characteristics and of the method of synthesis of these novel advanced materials. Emphasis is given to the catalytic decomposition of hydrocarbons over metal-supported catalysts and also the role of the support in obtaining homogeneous carbon nanotubes in high yelds is discussed. Some potential and real applications of carbon nanotubes are presented in a perspective view.

Keywords : carbon nanotubes; sol-gel; nanotechnology.
