Abstract

Material like PET {polyethylene terephthalate (C10H8O4)n} are usually thrown away present in glasses of refreshments, water bottles between others which are hard to be degraded. However, this material can be recycled and used to acquire nanostructures. During this investigation the objective was to obtain nanoparticles and carbon based nanostructures from the polymer type PET by means of microwave irradiation at the temperature of 260°C at normal pressure and at 600 psi in the presence of acids, ethylene glycol and by means of calcinations. The obtained nanoparticles of ultrananocrystalline diamonds were studied by means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and Raman spectroscopy.
