We report the application of statistical multivariate analysis to optimize the process parameters (including temperature, O 2 pressure, concentration of benzyl alcohol, Mn content, and K:Mn molar ratio) in the oxidation of benzyl alcohol using molecular oxygen over K-Mn/C catalysts. This multi-regression model, based on 38 experimental runs, shows… (More)
This paper presents a model-aided approach to the development of catalysts for CO oxidation. This is in contrast to the traditional methodology whereby experiments are guided based on experience and intuition of chemists. The proposed approach operates in two stages. To screen a promising combination of active phase, promoter and support material, a… (More)
The aerobic oxidation of 1-phenylethanol over a carbon nanotube supported palladium catalyst was improved with an ionic liquid additive [emim][NTf(2)], showing an excellent TON of 149,000 which can be maintained for 5 recycle runs.
The catalytic activity of Pt/CNT for benzyl alcohol aerobic oxidation was remarkably improved by decorating iron oxide on Pt nanoparticles, and electrochemical measurements evidenced the enhanced activation of oxygen and benzyl alcohol at the FeO(x)/Pt interface.
