Iron Carbide Features

Iron carbide has high conductivity and electrochemical performance. 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 performance. It is regarded as the next-generation anode material for lithium-ion batteries.

Transition Metal Carbide Nanostructures Attract Attention

The nanostructures of the transition metal carbides, in particular iron carbide nanomaterials have received much attention from researchers due to their excellent stability, high efficiency catalyst activity, and good biological compatibility. Features: Has important applications in the fields such as nanomagnetism and Tropsch catalysis (Tropsch), electrochemical energy storage conversion and biomedicine. Although commonly used methods of preparation, such as the solid-phase reaction and sonochemical methods and sol-gel, can lead to an agglomeration or difficulty in controlling phase, they are still widely used.

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, resulting 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 the reaction produced methyl acetate instead of ethylene glycol (EG) when copper-based cats were used. 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% yield of ethanol, while the by-products were mainly MA. Fe5C2 catalysts are clearly superior to copper-based catalysts in terms of performance.
