Low-Temperature Catalytic Performance of Nanostructured CuO
We report the low temperature catalytic performance of nanostructured CuO fabricated at low temperature (50 °C) in the single step hydrothermal reaction between copper(II) acetate Cu(CH3COO)2 · H2O and 2-piperidinemethanol (2PPM) in the absence of a template or structure-directing surfactants. The resulting nanostructured CuO (monoclinic space group C 2/c; lattice constants: a = 0.5244 nm, b = 0.3799 nm, c = 0. 5656 nm with β = 100.8) possessed a dendritic morphology containing short nanorod-like substructures (diameter around 10 nm and average lengths of about 20–30 nm), and displayed a relatively large surface area (146 m2 g–1). This novel nanostructured CuO material was demonstrated to selectively promote the NO-to-N2 conversion at a relatively low temperature of 150 °C.
