Solution phase preparative routes to nitride morphologies of interest in catalysis

Abstract

This review assesses the track record and prospects of non-oxide sol–gel and solvothermal routes to nitride materials for use in catalysis. There is a strongly developing body of synthesis methods that yield highly porous materials, some with engineered pore structures, nanocrystalline materials with high surface areas and anisotropic nanocrystals that have their surface area tuned to a particular crystal face. Most of the existing catalytic work on such solution-derived nitrides has focussed on utilising base properties due to surface bound amide and imide groups in silicon (imido)nitride compositions, but there are opportunities to extend these methods to other interesting nitride compositions.
