Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) were synthesized by disproportionation of carbon monoxide on an aerogel-supported Fe/Mo catalyst. A simple acidic treatment followed by an oxidation process produced a high purity (>99%) of SWNTs. The nanotubes obtained are bundled SWNTs and free of amorphous-carbon coating. Several factors that affect the yield and the quality of the SWNTs were also studied. This method shows great promise for large-scale production of SWNTs.
