Using Synchrotron X-ray Irradiation to Support Gold Nanoparticles on MWCNTs

- Over the last decade, nanoparticles have been paid much attention due to their special physical and chemical properties. This interest is because the properties of them are different from their bulk material. More specifically, gold nanoparticles can be used in many fields: semiconductors, biosensors, catalysis and biomedicine (1). It can be synthesized by a number of different methods such as, by radiation (2), Vapor deposition (3), electrochemically (4) and thermal decomposition (5). In addition, it can be attached to carbon nanotubes to synthesis a functional hybrid great metal/CNTs catalytic material....   [tags: X-ray Irradiation, Gold particles]
