Synthesis of Nanotube Array Composed of an Amorphous Matrix Embedded with NaCl-Type SiC Crystallites by Chemical Vapor Infiltration Techniques

Highly dense oriented arrays of nanotubes were synthesized via a chemical vapor infiltration process using anodic alumina membrane as a template. The nanotubes have a unique granular structure, which is composed of SiC nanocrystals embedded in an amorphous matrix. X-ray diffraction and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy examinations both indicate an NaCl-type crystalline structure of the SiC nanocrystals in the nanotubes. The process described here can be extended to the preparation of other nanomaterials that are suitable to be obtained via a vapor[ndash]solid approach.
