Abstract

We report here the one-step water-assisted CVD growth of metal oxide nanosheets/carbon nanotubes (CNTs) composites. The cross-linked composites were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and Raman spectroscopy. The results showed that helical CNTs were obtained when the CVD growth process was prolonged to 1 h, and the typical fish-bone-type CNTs can be observed by HRTEM. Moreover, a related growth mechanism is proposed to explain the growth of such novel nanocomposites.
