Controlled Growth of Carbon Nanocones on Carbon Fiber(S)/Fabric and Method of Synthesis thereof

Patent Status: 

Patent Filed

Indian Patent Applicaton No: 

1900/DEL/2008

Patent Category: 

Overview: 

Process for uniform coating of carbon nanocones [CNCs) on long/short carbon fiber(s)/fabric using various transition metal catalyst.

Key Features: 

  • The invented nanocones arrays represent a high aspect ratio structure (~5pm long].
  • The vertically aligned nanocones arrays have greater mechanical stiffness due to that, these nanocones can be used as nano syringes or dip-pen lithography tips.
  • Simple thermal chemical vapour deposition method is used to produce nanocones.
  • Single catalyst (transition metal] is used for the synthesis of nanocones.

Applications: 

  • In structural applications related to the areas in agriculture, aircraft and aerospace, corrosion resistant equipment, marine applications etc.
