Abstract

We report here a study of alternative methods for producing single walled buckytubes. In this study, we prepared graphite electrodes packed with different metal or metal combinations. These electrodes were arced under similar conditions and the products so formed characterized with TEM. The results demonstrate that single walled tubes can be synthesized in many ways and at high yields. The results also suggest that the use of more than a single dopant may provide significant advantages in the commercial synthesis of buckytubes.
