Multiwalled carbon nanotube/FeCo nanocomposites were produced by Catalytic Chemical Vapour Deposition using highly porous FeCo - SiO 2 aerogels with different loadings and dimensions of FeCo nanoparticles as catalysts. Multiwalled carbon nanotubes with average number of walls depending on the size of the catalyst nanoparticles w ere obtained. Inside the nanotubes spherical or elliptical FeCo nanoparticles are retained, and the magnetic properties of the resulting nanocomposites were characterized in detail.
