Abstract

Illustrated in this talk will be the use of premixed and diffusion flames as reaction environments for carbon nanotube synthesis. We have tested both systems using catalysts as aerosols and supported upon substrates. Highlights will be shown demonstrating success and further challenges. For illustration, this abstract illustrates two key parameter spaces, namely gas composition and catalyst size and composition in premixed and diffusion flames, respectively.
