Designed catalysts from Pt nanoparticles supported on macroporous oxides for selective isomerization of n-hexane.


Selective isomerization toward branched hydrocarbons is an important catalytic process in oil refining to obtain high-octane gasoline with minimal content of aromatic compounds. Colloidal Pt nanoparticles with controlled sizes of 1.7, 2.7, and 5.5 nm were deposited onto ordered macroporous oxides of SiO2, Al2O3, TiO2, Nb2O5, Ta2O5, and ZrO2 to investigate… (More)
