|Abstract: ||In this study, an attempt to fabricate silicon carbide
nanotubes (SiCNTs) from the reactions between
multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and silicon
dioxide (SiO2) is presented. Shape Memory Synthesis
(SMS) method was employed in this study. The
mixtures of the MWCNTs and SiO2 (ratio 3:1) was
irradiated by microwaves of different powers, namely
400W, 600W and 800W in a domestic microwaves
oven operating at 2.45GHz for 30 minutes. Microscopy
analysis revealed that the tubular structures of the
starting materials were retained after microwaves
irradiation and the X-ray diffraction analysis showed
that significant amount of SiC was formed in this study.|
