Abstract

original image

N in die Röhre! Kohlenstoff-Nanoröhren (CNTs) katalysieren die aerobe Oxidation von Cyclohexan zu Cyclohexanol, Cyclohexanon und Adipinsäure mit hervorragender Aktivität und steuerbarer Selektivität. Die katalytische Aktivität lässt sich durch eine Stickstoffdotierung der Nanoröhre noch steigern (siehe Diagramm; AC=aktivierter Kohlenstoff, MWCNT=mehrwandige CNT, N-CNT=Stickstoff-dotierte CNT).
