Abstract

Atomically ordered nickel carbide, Ni3C, was synthesized by reduction of nickel cyclopentadienyl (NiCp2) with sodium naphthalide to form Ni clusters coordinated by Cp (Ni-Cp clusters). Ni-Cp clusters were thermally decomposed to Ni3C nanoparticles smaller than 10 nm. The Ni3C nanoparticles showed better performance than Ni nanoparticles and Au nanoparticles in the electrooxidation of sodium borohydride. This journal is
