Abstract

A carbon-coated nano-MgO has been prepared with the assistance of sucrose and characterized by adsorption methods, X-ray diffraction method (XRD) and Scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Sucrose can both prevent the agglomeration of the synthesized Mg(OH)2 and act as the carbon source for surface coating of the MgO nanoparticles, and both crystallite sizes and carbon contents of the composites can be delicately adjusted by simply changing the sucrose to magnesium molar ratio. The MgO/C obtained in controlled synthesis has been proved to be a highly efficient chemisorbent for the dehydrochlorination of a PVC-containing mixture (Polypropylene/Polyvinyl Chloride).
