SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF CNTS BY NATURAL PRODUCT
Keywords:Carbon nano tubes, Natural product, Ni(ii),Albumin, Amino acid, Amino acid‐Metal complex, IR,NMR,DLS,STM
Nanotechnology is one of the most emerging technology these days.. Metal carbon nano tubes are having vast applications are used in every sphere
of life very frequently. Due to vast applications of CNTs it is necessary to develop new methods to prepare CNTs. One of the new methods to
prepare CNTs is chemical method . In this methods Complexes of transition metal Ni(II) with amino acids present in egg albumin have been
synthesized.. The complex so formed is analyzed by spectroscopic methods like IR, NMR Spectroscopy.
The amino acid metal Complex is decomposed at higher temperature using muffle furnace to obtain metal carbon nano tubes. These metal carbon
nano tubes are characterized using scanning probe instruments like DLS and STM.
