Abstract Silica supported dendrimer encapsulated ruthenium nanoparticles were prepared and evaluated as catalysts in the hydrogenation of citral. The dendrimer encapsulated nanoparticles were prepared using the generation 4 (G4), generation 5 (G5) and generation 6 (G6) hydroxyl-terminated poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM-OH) dendrimers as templating agents with different Ru metal:dendrimer ratios. The effects of ionic liquids as catalyst coatings on the catalytic activity were investigated for the ionic… CONTINUE READING
