Preparation of earth abundant metal mesoporous silica materials with implications for the production of liquid fuels
The global maritime fleet is an integral part of the United States economy, albeit at the cost of substantial contributions to atmospheric particulate matter, SOx, and NOx. This is further confounded by the inadequacies of electrification to provide clean alternative to conventional diesel engines. Fortunately, methanol fuels are poised to reduce emissions in commercial shipping, while Fischer-Tropsch synthesis of diesel can reduce dependence on foreign petroleum. Efforts can be improved by new facile routes towards SiO2 supported earth abundant metals such as Cu and Fe. Through HRTEM, RAMAN, ...
