Single Ni sites distributed on N-doped carbon for selective hydrogenation of acetylene

Author affiliations

Abstract

We prepared single Ni atoms embedded in an N-doped carbon catalyst with the assistance of metal organic frameworks. The dispersion of Ni atoms was verified by taking X-ray absorption fine structure measurements. Under the typical conditions for hydrogenation of acetylene, this single-site heterogeneous catalyst showed great potential as an alternative to Pd-based materials.
