The thesis outlines the findings for Final Year Project research entitled "Development and Characterization of Graphitic Carbon Nanofiber". The long-term key objective of the project is to produce carbon nanofiber (CNF) with high surface area, thus allowing high capacity of hydrogen storage. The scope of study covers the process of synthesizing CNF usiiig the already developed metal catalysts, Nickel (Ni) and Iron (Fe) via Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) method. The main difference between the author's research and other existingresearch is that the catalyst usedis ofa hybrid compositionbetween both nickel and iron oxide. 3 main factors are varied and studied to synthesize the CNF; hybrid catalyst composition, reaction temperature, and reaction time. After CNF is developed, it is characterized under Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDX) for study of the structure morphology and particle size. To further identify the effectiveness ofthe synthesizedCNF,activities to store hydrogen within the materialis to be explosed.
