Abstract

original image

An anodic aluminum oxide membrane containing silica nanoparticles in a silica nanotube, which includes Pd nanoparticles, is used to prepare a packed-bed nanoreactor. This nanoreactor shows excellent efficiency in gas-phase methanol decomposition, and the methyl formate produced as the partial oxidation product is obtained with high selectivity.
