Abstract

Taguchi method, largely used to optimize processes controlled by manifold parameters, has been utilized to improve the synthesis of carbon nanotubes by chemical vapor deposition of isobutane. Analyzing results obtained in nine suitably designed reactions, the influence of synthesis (773-973 K), calcinations (723-1,023 K) and reduction (773-973 K) temperatures and catalyst-support (alumina, magnesia or Na+-exchanged K10 clay) on specific yield and crystallization degree (ie, C sp2 content) of the nanotubes has been ranked. After critical …
