Bimetallic Ni-Mo Nitride as the Carbon Dioxide Hydrogenation Catalyst


Article Preview

The possibility of bimetallic Ni-Mo nitrides usage as the catalysts in carbon dioxide hydrogenation reaction was examined in this work. Powders were synthesized through thermo-programmed reduction of precursor, which was produced by evaporation of the metal-containing solution. Specimens were investigated by x-ray diffraction, thermogravimetry, low-temperature nitrogen adsorption and scanning electron microscopy. It is shown that final powders provide CO2 conversion of 29 % for contact time of 0.26 s.
