Importance of the activation site density on final encapsulation of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) with copper was investigated in this study. MWCNTs, sensitized with tin and activated with silver, were used as precursors to prepare copper-decorated nanotubes. The effect of activation bath pH was found to be critical to control the density of silver-activation sites and to produce uniform encapsulation of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with copper in the subsequent electroless depositiondoi:10.1088/1757-899x/438/1/012003 fatcat:4vs62mm36rbhbmlbpwduupwonm
