|Abstract:||We demonstrate in this study that nanofibres containing Co (or Fe, Ni), SrO and trace carbon can be synthesized via a catalytic process using CH4 or C2H4 as the reaction gas. The synthesized nanofibres are 50-200 nm in diameter and 1-15 μm in length. The length of the fibres can be controlled via a change of the reaction temperature. The formation mechanism is likely to be a two-step process combining catalytic decomposition of a carbon-containing gas and a sequential self-assembly process of growth into nanofibres.|
