Abstract

original image

Now in 3D! Three-dimensionally bimodal carbons (3D-BMC) with mesopores of tunable size (controlled through the polymerization of the carbon precursor) are synthesized. After loading with platinum, the catalysts are used in aqueous phase reforming of polyols, and show superior performance in terms of carbon conversion, hydrogen yield, selectivity, and hydrogen production rate compared to platinum catalysts supported on activated carbon or two-dimensional CMK-3.
