Revealing the enhanced catalytic activity of nitrogen-doped carbon nanotubes for oxidative dehydrogenation of propane

Author affiliations

Abstract

Bulk nitrogen doping can efficiently improve the catalytic performance of carbon nanotubes (CNT) in oxidative dehydrogenation of propane (ODH). The graphitic nitrogen plays a determining role in enhancing their activity by speeding up the activation of oxygen and decreasing the overall activation energy of the reaction.
