Abstract:

Experiments were performed to confine energetic nanoparticles aluminum nanoparticles on to a carbon nanofiber matrix in order to control the reactivity of the aluminum nanoparticles. We achieved nanohybrid materials of aluminum nanoparticles wrapped with Carbon nanofibers CNFs by electrospinning method. The morphology of aluminum decorated carbonized CNFs were studied by transmission electron microscopy TEM. We found that the degree of dispersion of aluminum on CNFs changing depending upon the nature of energetic nanoparticles, surfactant and experimental condition.
