Diverse synthesis of Iron Carbides, Morphology, and Electrochemical Uses
Iron carbide compounds have been investigated as catalysts for several energy related applications. These carbide materials also have other unique properties inducing stability, high melting points, and extreme hardness. Iron carbides however haven't been studied as nanomaterials due to limited synthesis techniques. We are studying a low temperature amine metal oxide route to form iron carbide as nanoparticles. This technique has been tested at temperatures ranging from 650°C to as high as 800°C. Iron carbide was successfully made using three separate diamines these conditions. We have also ...
