Abstract

A facile approach to prepare parallel mesoporous carbon nanotubes fabricated from an anodised aluminum oxide (AAO) template loaded with mesoporous silica by combining sol-gel and chemical vapor deposition (CVD) techniques is presented. The carbon nanotube walls that grow during CVD process copy the mesoporous structure of silica without removing the surfactant. The mechanism of formation of mesoporous carbon nanotubes was also studied. The technique results in a simple and efficient manner to produce parallel mesoporous carbon nanotubes exhibiting high specific surface area. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
