Investigation Of The Morphological, Atomic And Electronic Structural Changes CuOx Nanoparticles And CNT In A Nanocomposite CuOx/CNT: SEM And X-Ray Spectroscopic Studies
Published 2016 · Materials Science
Morphology, atomic and electronic structure of CuOx/CNT nanocomposite synthesized by electrochemical method were investigated using methods scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XANES and NEXAFS) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). It has been shown that by the formation of a nanocomposite changes in morphology, oxidation state and phase composition of CuOx nanoparticles in comparison with the initial particles were observed. The initial oxidation of carbon nanotube (CNT) surface leads to reduction ability of the formation of chemical bonds between the nanoparticles and tubes.
