FeN nanoparticles confined in carbon nanotubes for CO hydrogenation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Cubic FeN particles of a few nanometers in size were synthesized for the first time by encapsulation inside carbon nanotube (CNT) channels. Such an FeN catalyst exhibits a 5–7 times higher activity than a reduced Fe catalyst and a SiO2 supported iron nitride in CO hydrogenation. The confined FeN catalyst is also more active than iron nitride particles dispersed on the CNT exterior walls.
