Solution combustion synthesis of nanoscale non-oxide catalytic systems and characterization. Molybdenum carbide as an example
Ministry of Education and Science of RA, State Committee of Science Contracts (thematic) funding competition in 2015, a field, Chemistry

Short description

The ultimate aim of the project is to develop a new approach for the preparation of non-oxide nanostructures by the advanced solution combustion synthesis (SCS) or sol-gel combustion synthesis (SGCS) method, namely for the synthesis of molybdenum carbide (Mo2C) nanopowders, and perform their characterization and testing of catalytic properties. For this purpose the main advantages of conventional combustion synthesis (CS or SHS process) and new solution-based approaches will be combined to investigate the reaction temperature-time history and gas evolution processes for governing the product phase composition, morphology and catalytic properties. The feasibility to control the important parameters of reactive solutions containing Mo(VI) precursors and organic reducing agents (as a fuel), e.g. by means of the nature of reducer used, reducer/Mo(VI) salt ratio, pH of solution, preheating temperature and/or heating rate, amounts of specially introduced additives will be studied.
