Abstract

original image

Small and stable: Fe2O3 nanoparticles are homogeneously anchored onto reduced graphene oxide through the simultaneous hydrolysis of Fe(acac)3 and reduction of graphene oxide. This nanohybrid is highly resistant to sintering and retains its small particle size upon reduction at 723 K and long-term Fischer–Tropsch synthesis at 543 K (see figure). This work validates the prospect of graphene-related nanomaterials in challenging high-temperature applications.
