Multiwalled carbon nanotubes were functionalized and decorated with metal or bi-metallic nanoparticles by employing an RF sputtering machine. First, CNTs were functionalized in oxygen + argon plasma and then decorated with Au, Pt or Au/Pt. The size and density of the metal nanoparticles on the nanotube surface could be controlled by the process parameters such as power and deposition time. Structure morphology and chemical composition of the different hybrid materials were characterized bydoi:10.1016/j.proeng.2011.12.055 fatcat:fwyrmjvakrdylm766ysqhqyezm
