Gold'n'iron: The catalytic performance of gold catalysts supported on ferric oxide in the selective hydrogenation of benzalacetone to the corresponding α,β-unsaturated alcohol depends on the nanostructure of the support, as identified by a combination of X-ray powder diffraction, Mössbauer spectroscopy, micro-Raman spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and temperature-programmed reduction.
