    Abstract

    A novel high flux bright light-driven high temperature spinning disc processor operating at 720 °C can effectively synthesise carbon nanofibres from fructose, a natural feedstock, in polyethylene glycol-200, within minutes and with multiple reactor passes being a pivotal operating parameter in controlling the growth of the fibres.
