Chapter Three

Graphitic Nanofibers—The Path to Manufacturing

Abstract

The important factors to consider in the lead up to the manufacture of graphitic nanofibers, starting with a detailed description of the role of catalysts in this process are discussed. The various materials that can be used as a catalyst are mentioned, with the pros and cons of each highlighted. Generally accepted reaction mechanisms with intermediate building blocks and parameters affecting growth rate are outlined within the context of manufacturing nanofibers. The discussion gives a roadmap for process design to produce a consistent product, quality thought to devise ways for control and optimization in an effort to obtain the most reliable products.
