Acid-treated carbon nanotubes have been decorated with nanoscale Au, Pt and Ag clusters by employing several procedures. The nature and extent of metal coverage can be varied by changing the concentration of the metal compound or by mild sonication (treatment with ultrasound). The metal clusters seem to get deposited on the acidic surface sites of the nanotubes.
