Abstract
In this study, mesoporous Cr2O3 catalysts are prepared by use of the hard template method using mesoporous silica (SBA-15) as template, the prepared catalysts were characterized, and investigated for ortho to para hydrogen. The Cr2O3 catalysts at post-treated temperature at 150 C have the largest BET surface area of 230m2 g 1, and the length and diameter of the particles are 2 mm and 5 nm, respectively. The highest spin conversion from ortho to para hydrogen was observed for the mesoporous Cr2O3 catalysts with the largest surface area post-treated at 150 C in the range from 150 to 300 C. The nanowire array morphology of the powders was maintained at the post-treatment temperature ranges of 150 and 200 C. However, when temperature increased up to 300 C, the nanowire array morphology disappeared. It was showed that the spin conversion process was strongly dependent on various factors such as BET surface area, calcination temperature and morphology of mesoporous Cr2O3 catalysts.
