Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A binary phase of layered nanotubes, where MWCNs (Multi-walled carbon nanotubes) are coated by WS2, are generated by pyrolysing WO3-coated MWCNs in an H2S/N2 atmosphere at 900°C. TGA and TEM show that WS2 acts as an antioxidant with respect to the MWCN core.
