Study of the cathode Deposit

Carbon cathode Deposit - the waste fraction of complex-structured, agglomerated carbon that appears when graphite rods are burned in an inert helium environment. The average content of the cathode Deposit relative to the fullerene-containing soot produced per shift varies from 3% to 8%.
The result of the preliminary study was the determination of a small number of carbon nanotubes and the residual content of the main substance, namely fullerene C60. The content of both nanotubes and fullerenes does not exceed 1-1.5% for each.
A detailed report on the analysis of the results will be presented in the near future.
