Getting friendly with methanol: The most important challenge in gas phase heterogeneous catalysis is to reach high selectivity in a desired process. Probably the only way to get high selectivity in gas phase heterogeneous catalysis is to work under “friendly temperature conditions”. Methyl formate could be produced directly from methanol with a very high selectivity, over supported palladium nanoparticles at low temperature and under atmospheric pressure.
