Luza, L., Rambor, C. P., Gual, A., Alves Fernandes, J., Eberhardt, D., & Dupont, J. (2017). Revealing Hydrogenation Reaction Pathways on Naked Gold Nanoparticles. ACS Catalysis, 7(4), 2791-2799. doi:10.1021/acscatal.7b00391

Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) display distinct characteristics as hydrogenation catalysts, with higher selectivity and lower catalytic activity than group 8−10 metals. The ability of AuNPs to chemisorb/activate simple molecules is limited by the low coo... Read More
