Abstract

Carbon nanofiber (CNF) growth has been achieved on carbon paper fibers via two nickel deposition routes: i. nickel nanoparticle-ethanol suspension casting, and ii. homogenous deposition precipitation (HDP) of nickel onto carbon paper. Nickel nanoparticles created regular tubular CNF whereas HDP of nickel forms mainly herringbone and platelet fiber structures. Average porosity of the carbon paper maintained over 50 % in both methods having more than 20 % CNF growth on one side of the carbon paper.
