Abstract: MoS2 sheathed carbon nanotubes have been successfully synthesized using a hydrothermal route under controlled conditions. The
resultant material was studied by XRD, EDS, HRTEM, and Raman spectroscopy. Advantages of the preparation presented here compared
to other methods are: a) lower reaction temperature, b) high yield of sheathed nanotubes including ends and full body, c)
simple process with non-toxic materials, and d) no damage inflicted to nanotubes.
Keywords: carbon nanotubes – MoS2 – characterization – hydrothermal synthesis
