N-containing fibrous carbon material prepared by decomposition of CH4/H2/pyridine mixtures over Ni–Cu catalysts has been studied by X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). The essential effect of the decomposition temperature (in the range of 820–1020 K) and reaction mixture composition on the nitrogen content, its chemical state and the texture of produced carbon filaments was found.
