Abstract

Magnesia-carbon nanotubes (abbreviated as MgO-CNTs) nanocomposites were prepared by impregnation of CNTs with Mg(NO3)2 · 6H2O in ethanol solution, followed by drying at 353 K and calcination at 873 K, respectively. The nanocomposites are thermally more stable than CNTs in a H2 flow. The use of the nanocomposites as support yielded more efficient Ru catalysts for the generation of COx-free hydrogen from NH3 decomposition.
