—Carbon nanotubes are fascinating electronic
material with unique physical properties and many important
potential applications. Due to various applications of CNTs it is
necessary to develop new methods for the synthesis of CNTS.
In this chemical method, complexes of transition metal Co (II)
with amino acid present in egg albumin have been synthesized.
The complex so formed, is analyzed on the basis of
spectroscopic method using, IR and NMR spectra confirms the
lysine cobalt metal ion complex.
The lysine cobalt metal ion complex is decomposed at higher
temperature using muffle furnace to get metal carbon
nanotubes. These metal carbon nanotubes are characterized
using scanning probe instruments like AFM and DLS and XRD.
—Co (II), albumin, albumin-metal-complex, IR,
NMR, AFM, DLS, X-RD.
