ABSTRACT

Continuous titanium carbide (TiC) nanofibers that possess an intriguing nanoribbon morphology with a width and thickness of approximately 300 nm and approximately 40 nm, respectively, and containing TiC crystallites with sizes ranging from 5 nm to 30 nm were synthesized through electrospinning followed by carbothermal reduction.
