One-step synthesis of samarium-doped ceria and its CO catalysis
- 112 Downloads
The samarium-doped ceria (SDC) nanospheres were prepared by the one-step hydrothermal method and characterized by transmission electron microscope, scanning electron microscope, powder X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, energy-dispersive spectrometer and Raman spectra. According to the results, samarium was doped into the lattice successfully. The as-prepared samples were dispersed well and the average diameter was 60 nm. It showed better catalytic performance than pure ceria and the most appropriate concentration of doping was found.
