- ... We investigate the influence of hydrogen on carbon nanotube (CNT) growth in thermal catalytic chemical vapor deposition. Kinetic calculations of gas-phase transformations of hydrocarbons show that hydrogen interacts with gaseous carbon precursors, resulting in modification of the carbon supply rate to the catalyst particle. A surface-kinetic model of CNT growth is developed to study adsorption and ...
