Abstract

original image

Die carbothermale Reduktion von anodischen TiO2-Nanoröhrenschichten in Acetylen wandelt die Röhrenwände in leitfähige und beständige Oxycarbid-Strukturen um. So werden halbmetallische TiO2-Nanoröhrenschichten (TiOxCy) erhalten, die als Elektrodenmaterialien andere Eigenschaften als TiO2-Nanoröhren zeigen (siehe Bild). Sie verfügen über eine hohe Sauerstoff-Überspannung und können als Katalysatorträger, z. B. in der Methanoloxidation, eingesetzt werden.
