Abstract: Novel and sustainable heterogeneous catalysts, namely, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) decorated with Sm doped fluorapatite nanocomposites (MWCNT/Sm-FAp) were prepared by facile coprecipitation method using glutamic acid as an organic modifier with different loadings of Sm (1%, 2%, 3%, 5%, and 7%). The nanocomposites were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), Fourier transform infra-red spectroscopy (FT-IR), microscopic techniques (FESEM, HRTEM), energy dispersive Xray spectrometer (EDX) and…
