High purity high nickel content coated multi-walled carbon nanotubes of different sizes

For applications in hydrogen storage, catalysts, solar cells, and biosensors

Ni-MWCNTs (nickel coated multi-walled carbon nanotubes) is ferromagnetic nickel coated on one dimensional multi-walled carbon nanotubes framework, showing good magnetic properties.

With excellent electrical conductivity, remarkable chemical stability, and high number of active sites, Ni-MWCNTs exhibit excellent oxygen evolution reaction (OER) catalytic performance. Nickel impregnated multi-walled carbon nanotubes has also been used in dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) to replace the platinum counter electrode material, exhibiting a higher power-conversion-efficiency (PCE) of 9.72% while compared to that of Pt-based DSSC (8.85%).
