The preparation of highly effective catalysts by dealloying Au–Ag alloys was recently reported, and is discussed in this Highlight. The nanoporous gold catalysts are highly effective for the gas-phase oxidative coupling of methanol to form methyl formate under mild reaction conditions; the reaction is shown to proceed through a formate intermediate.
