Abstract: Ferrocene-filled double-walled carbon nanotubes (Fc@DWNTs) were successfully synthesized by introducing ferrocene molecules into the hollow cavities of DWNTs in a vapor phase diffusion process. High resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) were employed to characterize this nanohybrid material. FTIR results revealed that there were strong intermolecular interactions between DWNTs and ferrocene, indicating electron transfers occured between them.

Key words: DWNTs, Ferrocene, Infrared spectroscopy, Electron transfer
