Carbon-encapsulated highly dispersed FeMn nanoparticles for Fischer-Tropsch synthesis to light olefins

Abstract

Highly dispersed FeMn nanoparticles were encapsulated by carbon layer to form the core-shell structure. Such catalyst (FeMn@C) exhibited distinguished catalytic activity, high light olefin selectivity (40.6%) and superior stability in Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis. Furthermore, it was revealed that the carbon layer could facilitate the formation of χ-Fe5C2 with suitable particle size, which is responsible for the enhanced catalytic activity. More significantly, the core-shell structure of FeMn@C could also influence the hydrocarbon distributions, as well as catalyst stability due to confinement effect.
