Mesoporous SiO2-Supported Pt Nanoparticles for Catalytic Application

Figure 6

N2 adsorption-desorption isotherms of “one-pot” method for prepared Pt/SiO2 after removal of templates and the controlled samples: (e) EG, (f) Gly, (g) EG-Pt, and (h) Gly-Pt. (e) and (g) are type IV-like isotherms with type H2 hysteresis loops that represents mesopores which are mainly in the samples, while glycerol template sample has no loops in the N2 adsorption-desorption isotherm (b) and (d) which indicates that the pores are mainly mircopores.
