Abstract

original image

Al2O3-supported copper nanoparticles prepared from cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) capped copper nanoparticles are effective water-gas shift catalysts. High activity can be explained by the presence of well-dispersed Cu nanoparticles on the alumina support due to strong interaction between CTAB and the Cu nanoparticles.
