Systematic errors”, namely, oxygen vacancy sites in ZnO, are the active centers for the hydrogenation of CO to give methanol. Nanocrystalline ZnO with a high density of oxygen vacancies was prepared from special organometallic precursors, and its catalytic properties for methanol synthesis were studied.
