Abstract

The nanoporous materials prepared from iron-iron oxide core-shell nanoparticles are of great interest due to their enhanced possibilities for distribution in the environment, a high rate of chemical reactivity and also the possibility to enhance environmentally friendly reaction paths. However, production of these nanoparticle porous materials by conventional methods is difficult. Therefore, we use a cluster deposition system, which prepares the iron nanoclusters and iron-iron oxide core shell nanoclusters at room temperature. The nanoporous films are synthesized by using the nanoclusters as building blocks. These films are characterized using Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), and the Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) method for surface area determination.
