Chemoselective Hydrogenolysis of Glycerol Catalyzed by Platinum on Carbonaceous Supports

, , , , , , , , , , , ,
Glycerol has been selectively converted into 1,2-propandiol in the presence of dihydrogen and heterogeneous Pt-based catalysts. These latter catalysts consist of small-size Pt-nanoparticles (NPs) (i.e. 1.0-1.5 nm,) obtained by a metal vapor synthesis, supported on [...]

Silicon and nickel nanoparticle size and morphology as a key to control the particle photoluminescence and photochemistry

, , , , , , , , , ,
The work studies the structural and photoinduced properties of silicon nanoparticles (NanoSi) obtained by plasmachemical and electrolytic techniques and the nickel particles deposited on aluminum oxide film in ultra-high vacuum.

Microwave-assisted hydrothermal synthesis of Cu-doped titanate nanotubes: photoluminescence and photocatalysis properties

, , , , , , , , ,
Alkali titanates have been intensively investigated mostly because of their properties. And the interest for transition metal doping of 1D titanate nanostructures is enormous, especially copper. In the present work we report the synthesis of [...]

A highly dispersed Cu-Ni/Ce0.5Zr0.5O2/SBA-15 nanocatalysts: Preparation, characterization and the catalytic application in direct synthesis of dimethyl carbonate

, , , , , , , , ,
SBA-15 has been successfully applied as a support to prepare supported metal catalysts[1]. Nevertheless, Conventional impregnation method cannot assure the incorporation of active species into SBA-15 mesopores. The modification of silica support using ethylene glycol [...]
