Superhydrophobic Materials as Efficient Catalysts for Hydrocarbon Selective Oxidation
A new type of superhydrophobic material, FP-Co-SiO2 was prepared with organic groups immobilized on the surface of the SiO2-based nanocomposite. This material showed much higher catalytic activity for selective oxidation of hydrocarbons than an equivalent hydrophilic catalyst.
