DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF SUPPORTED-METAL CATALYSTS THROUGH NANOTECHNOLOGY
MetadataShow full item record
A design and a solid state fabrication scheme are proposed for the production of supported-metal catalysts micrometer-long and nanometer-wide. Ni catalysts supported on SiO2 have been fabricated according to the proposed scheme. The catalytic testing of the model Ni/SiO2 system revealed that it can reproduce the behavior of traditional Ni on silica clusters. Thus, the model system is an adequate catalyst and the proposed scheme is appropriate for the manufacturing of supported-metal catalysts.
