The thermally induced decomposition of single-wall carbon nanotubes adsorbed on H/Si was discussed. It was found that the carbon nanotubes with relatively high defect density were decomposed under reaction with silicon to form silicon carbide at temperatures (650±10°C). The analysis suggested that the morphology of the resultant silicon carbide islands reflected the morphology of the original nanotubes.
