Magnetic carbon nanostructures: Microwave energy-assisted pyrolysis vs. conventional pyrolysis
Magnetic carbon nanostructures from microwave assisted- and conventional-pyrolysis processes are compared. Unlike graphitized carbon shells from conventional heating, different carbon shell morphologies including nanotubes, nanoflakes and amorphous carbon were observed. Crystalline iron and cementite were observed in the magnetic core, different from a single cementite phase from the conventional process. © 2012 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
