Study Results from Changzhou University in the Area of General Science Reported (Biotemplated fabrication of hierarchical mesoporous CeO2 derived from diatom and its application for catalytic oxidation of CO)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Researchers detail new data in Science. According to news originating from Changzhou, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Hierarchically hollow nanostructures have been the focus of numerous studies due to their prominent physicochemical properties that differ significantly from bulk materials and their potential for extensive applications. We present a novel diatom-based scaffold for the synthesis of hierarchically biomorphic CeO2 with special porous structure via incorporating Ce ions into the frustule."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Changzhou University, "Scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and nitrogen adsorption-desorption measurements were adopted to characterize the products. Owing to its unique hierarchical structure and periodic meso-macro scale features, the obtained CeO2 exhibits high catalytic activity in CO oxidation."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "This facile strategy may design a new way towards replicating desired biological structures for metal oxide catalyst in other potential applications."
