Figure 4

(a) Low magnification TEM image of thin nanofibers found in sample made with Mg(BH4)2 and MCM-41. (b) TEM image of a highly curved nanofiber showing a catalyst head indicating it grew using a VLS mechanism. Note the structure around the catalyst head is not bulbous or seemingly different from that of the rest of the nanofiber. (c) Another nanofiber exhibiting similar characteristics.
