A simple and green method of depositing monometallic (Ru, Rh, Pd) and bimetallic nanoparticles (Ru-Rh, Ru-Pd and Rh-Pd) on an ordered mesoporous silica support (MCM-41) in supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) is described. Metal acetylacetonates were used in the experiments as CO2-soluble metal precursors. Suitable temperature and pressure conditions for(More)
Platinum/ruthenium nanoparticles were decorated on carbon nanotubes (CNT) in supercritical carbon dioxide, and the nanocomposites were characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). TEM images show that the particles size is in the range of 5-10 nm, and XRD patterns show a face-centered cubic crystal structure. Methanol(More)
Carbon nanotube (CNT)-supported Pt nanoparticle catalysts have been synthesized in supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO(2)) using platinum(II) acetylacetonate as metal precursor. The structure of the catalysts has been characterized with transmission electron micrograph (TEM) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). TEM images show that the platinum(More)
Newly designed graphene cellular monoliths (GCMs) functionalized with hollow Pt-M nanoparticles (NPs) (Pt-M/GCM, M = Ni, Co) have been successfully achieved by a facile and powerful method on the basis of sonochemical-assisted reduction and gelatinization processes. First, hollow Pt-M (M = Ni, Co) NPs were synthesized and distributed on graphene oxide(More)
Carbon nanotube-supported platinum nanoparticles with a 5-15 nm diameter size range can be synthesized by hydrogen reduction of platinum(ll) acetylacetonate in methanol modified supercritical carbon dioxide. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction spectra indicate that the carbon nanotubes contain zero-valent platinum metal and(More)
