Platinum Nanoparticles Supported on Nitrogen-doped Carbon Nanofibers as Efficient Poisoning Catalysts for the Hydrogenation of Nitroarenes



original image

Platinum nanoparticles supported on nitrogen-doped carbon nanofibers (N-CNF-H) are synthesized by thermally decomposing [Pt(dba)2] (dba=dibenzylideneacetone) in the presence of N-CNF-H and act as reusable poisoning catalysts for the nitro-selective hydrogenation of functionalized nitroarenes to the corresponding anilines and N-aryl hydroxylamines.
