Nanostructured Cu and Cu@Cu2O core shell catalysts for hydrogen generation from ammonia–borane

Author affiliations

Abstract

Copper nanoparticles have been prepared by the solvated metal atom dispersion (SMAD) method. Oxidation of the SMAD prepared copper colloids resulted in Cu@Cu2O core shell structures (7.7 ± 1.8 nm) or Cu2O nanoparticles depending on the reaction conditions. The nano Cu, Cu@Cu2O core shell, and Cu2O particles were found to be catalytically active for the generation of hydrogen from ammonia–borane either viahydrolysis or methanolysis reaction.
