We report a study of hydrogen adsorption experiment on SWNT samples deposited by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and investigated with ElectronSpinResonance spectroscopy (ESR) before and after hydrogen treatment. The ESR investigation was performed at room and lowtemperature (4–30 K). We found that ESR technique is very useful to investigate paramagnetic centers and their interaction with hydrogen. The morphology and structure of the samples were characterized by Micro-Raman spectroscopy. Subsequently the thermal stability was investigated by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) testing. Brunauer Emmett Teller (BET) analysis was used to calculate the specific surface area and porosity of the as grown samples. All characterizations showed a small presence of residual Fe impurity (3.3 wt.%).

Abstract

We report a study of hydrogen adsorption experiment on SWNT samples deposited by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and investigated with ElectronSpinResonance spectroscopy (ESR) before and after hydrogen treatment. The ESR investigation was performed at room and lowtemperature (4–30 K). We found that ESR technique is very useful to investigate paramagnetic centers and their interaction with hydrogen. The morphology and structure of the samples were characterized by Micro-Raman spectroscopy. Subsequently the thermal stability was investigated by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) testing. Brunauer Emmett Teller (BET) analysis was used to calculate the specific surface area and porosity of the as grown samples. All characterizations showed a small presence of residual Fe impurity (3.3 wt.%).
