Abstract in another language

This study investigated carbon nanofibers (CNFs) grown on reticulated vitreous carbon (RVC) foam through catalytic deposition of ethylene. Before growing the CNFs, Co(II) on the RVC foam was expected to act as a catalyst by deposition. The preparation of the CNFs was a two-step process. The first step was preparing the RVC from polyurethane (PU) foam. Changes in weight over time were evaluated using two kinds of resol. The change in the mass and state of the sample with the change in temperature was studied during the carbonization process. The second step was to prepare the CNFs. An OH group was attached by the oxidation of the RVC foam. A change in the shape and mass of the sample was observed due to a change in nitric acid concentration and oxidation time. Then, cobalt was deposited to grow CNFs on the RVC foam. Hydrolysis helped to deposit the Co(II) on the RVC foam. The appropriate time and temperature were investigated for the reduction process. In the last step, CNFs were prepared by the introducing ethylene gas. The resulting samples were analyzed using scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectroscopy, N2-sorption, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
