Catalysts with about 2.5 wt% of gold supported on Al2O3, ZrO2, CeO2, La2O3 and MgO oxides and with the same mean metal particle sizes of 2.4–3.0 nm have been studied in hydrogen production via formic acid decomposition. A strong volcano-type relation of the catalytic activity on the electronegativity of the support's cation was demonstrated with the Au/Al2O3 catalyst on the top. This indicated that the activity is affected by the acid–base properties of the support. A study of the most active… CONTINUE READING
