AbstractFe-, Ni-, and alloyed FeNi-filled carbon nanotubes (Fe@CNT, Ni@CNT, and FeNi@CNT) were prepared by a general strategy using a mixture of xylene and dichlorobenzene as carbon source, and ferrocene, nickelocene, and their mixture as catalysts. By tailoring the composition of the carbon precursor, the filling ratio and the wall thickness of metal@CNT could be controlled. For the catalytic oxidation of cyclohexane in liquid phase with molecular oxygen as oxidant, the highest activity was obtained over Fe@CNT synthesized from pure dichlorobenzene. However, Ni filling did not improve the activity of CNTs. The effects of metal filling, wall thickness, and defects on catalytic activity were investigated to determine the structure-activity relationship of the filled CNTs. The enhanced catalytic performance can be attributed to a combined contribution of thin walls of CNTs and confined electron-donating metals, which are favourable to electron transfer on the surfaces of CNTs. The modification of the electronic structure of CNTs upon Fe and Ni fillers insertion was elucidated through density functional theory calculations.
