(1) As a precursor, coatings and films are prepared on Mo, Re, W, titanium cathode, and silicon by chemical vapor deposition;

(2) Heating Fe(CO)5 and Pt(acac)2 to prepare Fe/Pt alloy nanoparticles, which can be used as magnetic storage.

(3) As a precursor, catalytic electrodes for electric vehicle fuel cells were prepared by chemical vapor deposition method.

(4) Using Pt(acac)2 as the precursor system, PGMs/Al2O3, PGMs/TiO2, PGMs/SiO2 and other highly dispersed carrier catalysts were prepared, which could be used as catalysts for homogeneous and heterogeneous hydrogenation and dehalogenation reactions.

(5) Catalysts used as sensors for photocopying carbon siloxanes.


It can be packed according to customers' requirements.
