Iron Carbide Features
Iron carbide has excellent performance in terms of rate and electrochemical stability. It is considered to be the next-generation of anode material for lithium-ion batteries. strong>Iron carbide/strong>, a kind of transition metal carbide, has high conductivity, electrochemical stability, and excellent rate performance. It is regarded as the next-generation lithium-ion anode material.
Transition Metal Carbide Nanostructures Attract Attention
The nanostructures of the transition metal carbides have received much attention in recent years. This is especially true for iron carbide nanomaterials due to their excellent stability, high catalytic efficiency, and good biocompatibility. Features: Has important applications in the fields such as nanomagnetism and Tropsch catalysis (Tropsch), electrochemical energy storage conversion, and biomedicine. Current preparation methods, such as the solid-phase reaction and sonochemical methods or sol-gel, are prone to agglomeration, which can make it difficult to control phase.
Iron Carbide Catalyst: Application
Zhao Yujun’s Tianjin team has been making breakthroughs by using Fe5C2 catalysts in the DMO system to produce alcohol. The researchers developed an innovative hydrogen and mixed gas carbonization, which resulted in a relatively durable iron carbide catalyst.
Further studies found that the DMO hydrogenation reaction route using Fe5C2 was different from that of copper-based catalysts, in part because Fe5C2 could selectively activate -OH on the intermediate product methylglycolate (MG), so after adding hydrogen reaction produced methyl acetate(MA) instead ethylene glycol(EG) on copper based catalysts. MA can be further hydrogenated on Fe5C2 with high selectivity to produce alcohol. Fe5C2 did not have significant CC bond-breaking activity. The higher reaction temperature (260 degrees Celsius) resulted in a 90% ethanol production, while the MA by-product was predominant. Fe5C2 catalysts are clearly superior to copper-based catalysts in terms of performance.
