    Abstract

    The use of carbon nanotubes decorated with metallic particles is having a great impact as a reinforcing nanomaterial in different applications. In this work, multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were synthesized by chemical vapor deposition and decorated with silver nanoparticles via in-situ. The MWCNTs-Ag were characterized by SEM, TEM, Raman, XRD, and XPS. The results indicated that the silver nanoparticles dispersed homogeneously on the outer surface of the MWCNTs.
