Facile preparation of glycine-based mesoporous graphitic carbons with embedded cobalt nanoparticles

Wenhai Wang, Alvaro Y. Tesio, Mara Olivares-Marín, Pedro Gómez Romero & Dino Tonti
A simple route has been developed for the preparation of mesoporous graphitic carbons with embedded cobalt nanoparticles just using glycine as a nitrogen source, cobalt nitrate and distilled water. After heating the mixture to 300 °C under magnetic stirring, a dry solid product was obtained, which was then carbonized at 900 ºC under argon atmosphere. Changing the glycine/Co molar ratio allowed controlling the size of the cobalt particles and their dispersion in the carbon matrix, the porosity of the carbon and its graphitic character.
