Abstract

original image

The fabric of life: Fabrics of metal-oxide nanofibers are a new class of high-performance catalytic materials with potential applications in industrial chemistry. By providing excellent dispersion, order, and access to the catalytic sites, La2O3[BOND]CeO2 fabrics exhibited high performance in the oxidative coupling of methane at significantly lower feed-gas temperatures than analogous powder catalysts.
