Three-dimensionally (3D) ordered macroporous (3DOM) MgO, gamma-Al(2)O(3), Ce(0.6)Zr(0.4)O(2), and Ce(0.7)Zr(0.3)O(2) with polycrystalline mesoporous walls have been successfully fabricated with the triblock copolymer EO(106)PO(70)EO(106) (Pluronic F127) and regularly packed monodispersive polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres as the template and(More)
Three-dimensionally (3D) ordered macroporous (3DOM) iron oxides with nanovoids in the rhombohedrally crystallized macroporous walls were fabricated by adopting the dual-templating [Pluronic P123 and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) colloidal microspheres] strategy with ferric nitrate as the metal precursor in an ethanol or ethylene glycol and methanol mixed(More)
By adopting the strategy of dissolution-recrystallization under hydrothermal conditions (at 240 degrees C for 72 h) in the presence of a triblock copolymer (Pluronic P123), we fabricated nano- and microparticles of single-crystalline MgO of rectangular parallelepiped and hexagonal prism morphologies. The MgO crystallites display three-dimensional(More)
Using a mixture of NaNO3 and NaF as molten salt and MnSO4 and AgNO3 as metal precursors, 0.13 wt % Ag/Mn2O3 nanowires (0.13Ag/Mn2O3-ms) were fabricated after calcination at 420 °C for 2 h. Compared to the counterparts derived via the impregnation and poly(vinyl alcohol)-protected reduction routes as well as the bulk Mn2O3-supported silver catalyst,(More)
The oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) of propane was investigated on vanadia dispersed on alumina containing a nominal polymolybdate monolayer (4.8 Mo/nm2). Dehydrogenation rates and selectivities on these catalysts were compared with those on vanadia domains dispersed on alumina. At a given vanadia surface density, ODH reaction rates per gram of catalyst(More)
Nanosized rod-like, wire-like, and tubular α-MnO(2) and flower-like spherical Mn(2)O(3) have been prepared via the hydrothermal method and the CCl(4) solution method, respectively. The physicochemical properties of the materials were characterized using numerous analytical techniques. The catalytic activities of the catalysts were evaluated for toluene(More)
Three-dimension ordered macroporous (3D-OM) bismuth vanadates with a monoclinic crystal structure and high surface area (18-24 m(2) g(-1)) have been prepared using ascorbic acid (AA)- or citric acid (CA)-assisted poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA)-templating strategy with bismuth nitrate and ammonium metavanadate as the metal sources, HNO(3) as the pH(More)
Three-dimensionally (3D) ordered and wormhole-like mesoporous iron oxides (denoted as Fe-KIT6 and Fe-CA) were respectively prepared by adopting the 3D ordered mesoporous silica KIT-6-templating and modified citric acid-complexing strategies, and characterized by a number of analytical techniques. It is shown that the Fe-KIT6-400 and Fe-CA-400 catalysts(More)
Monoclinic BiVO4 with multiple morphologies and/or porous structures were fabricated using the hydrothermal strategy. The materials were characterized by means of the XRD, Raman, TGA/DSC, SEM, XPS, and UV-Vis techniques. The photocatalytic activities of the BiVO4 materials were evaluated for the degradation of Methyl Orange under visible-light irradiation.(More)
Three-dimensionally ordered macroporous (3DOM) Mn2O3 and its supported gold (xAu/3DOM Mn2O3, x=1.9-7.5wt%) nanocatalysts were prepared using the polymethyl methacrylate-templating and polyvinyl alcohol-protected reduction methods, respectively. The 3DOM Mn2O3 and xAu/3DOM Mn2O3 samples exhibited a surface area of 34-38m(2)/g. The Au nanoparticles (NPs) with(More)
