Formation of palladium fullerides and their thermal decomposition into palladium nanoparticles
2007 (English)In: Carbon, Vol. 45, no 13, 2564-2569 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Formation of palladium fullerides from various Pd:C60 compositions was studied by XRD, Raman spectroscopy and TEM. Raman spectra of PdxC60 samples show close similarity to spectra of C60 polymers obtained under high pressure/high temperature conditions and suggest the formation of chain-like and two-dimensional polymeric structures in PdxC60 of various compositions. Thermal decomposition of PdxC60 results in the formation of fine 5-10 nm size nanoparticles of palladium which can be used for catalytic applications
