Thomas, J.M., Johnson, B.F.G., Raja, R., Sankar, G. and Midgley, P.A. (2003) High-performance nanocatalysts for single-step hydrogenations Accounts of Chemical Research, 36, (1), pp. 20-30. (doi:10.1002/chin.200316294).

Record type: Article


This article discusses the usage of nanoporous silica support for anchoring bimetallic nanoparticle catalysts, which display high activity and selectivity in single-step hydrogenation reactions. Research reveals that the methodology is applicable to other solids possessing nanopores in the range of 3-30 nanometers, such as carbon nanoporous arrays for dispersing platinum nanoparticles
