Selective oxidation of glycerol with oxygen using mono and bimetallic catalysts based on Au, Pd and Pt metals
The liquid phase oxidation of glycerol with oxygen has been studied using a series of monometallic and bimetallic catalysts based on Au, Pd and Pt metals supported on carbon, in order to study theExpand

Consecutive hydrogenation of benzaldehyde over Pd catalysts influence of supports and sulfur poisoning
Abstract Pd catalysts on different supports (active carbon, silica, alumina) were studied for the selective hydrogenation of benzaldehyde to benzyl alcohol. They were characterized by TPR, COExpand

Pd-Fe/SiO2 Catalysts in the Hydrogenation of 2,4-Dinitrotoluene
Pd-Fe/SiO2 bimetallic catalysts with a constant amount of Pd and a different Fe/Pd ratio were prepared by sequential wet impregnation and the hydrogenation of 2,4-dinitrotoluene was carried out atExpand

ASAXS study of Au, Pd and Pd–Au catalysts supported on active carbon
Abstract Among the techniques commonly used, small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) is, in principle, particularly suited for the analysis of nanostructured systems. However, catalysts supported onExpand

Pd-Au and Pd-Pt catalysts for the direct synthesis of hydrogen peroxide in absence of selectivity enhancers
Abstract Organic polymers are suitable candidates as catalytic materials for the direct synthesis of hydrogen peroxide (DSR) from dihydrogen and dioxygen, in view of the low temperature applied. InExpand
