General description

Camphor is a novel carbon nanotube precursor.

Application

Camphor was used in the synthesis of single-walled nanotubes by chemical vapor deposition. It was used in two-phase based hollow fibre liquid-phase microextraction procedure for migration analysis of food packagings containing essential oils.
