- Silicon carbide-alumina nanocomposite supports including a nanowire architecture for a high dispersion of cobalt nanocatalysts were fabricated using a modified sol– gel process and paste extrusion process to form cylindrical shape beads, followed by thermal treatment. Well-developed aluminosilicate nanowires were formed on a nanoporous support, which are grown from a catalytic metal seed at the nanowire growth tips during heat treatment at 1,100 C for 1 h under nitrogen gas flow. Cobalt oxide precursors were highly dispersed on the nanowires grown on the surface of the nanoporous bodies through a supercritical carbon dioxide fluid-assisted wet-impregnation process. The highlydispersed Co nanoparticles with size of less than 10 nm were finally obtained on the nanowires via phase transitions from Co3O4 to CoO and from CoO to Co during the thermal reduction.
