Abstract

original image

Kern aus Gold: Säurebehandelte Au-Pd-Katalysatoren auf einem TiO2-Substrat haben einen definierten goldreichen Kern (blau im Bild) und eine palladiumreiche Schale (grün). Dieser Kern-Schale-Aufbau verbessert die Aktivität des Katalysators für die direkte Synthese von H2O2 aus H2 und O2.
