A new approach for the preparation of well-defined Rh and Pt nanoparticles stabilized by phosphine-functionalized silica for selective hydrogenation reactions.

Abstract

In this work, a new methodology for the synthesis of well-defined metallic nanoparticles supported on silica is described. This methodology is based on the surface control provided by SOMC. The nanoparticles are formed via the organometallic approach and are catalytically active in the hydrogenation of p-xylene, 3-hexyne, 4-phenyl-2 butanone, benzaldehyde, and furfural.
