A great support act at the Palladium: In the search for an alternative to the current indirect industrial synthesis of H2O2, small nanoparticles of Au–Pd alloys have been shown to be highly active catalysts for the direct synthesis of H2O2 from O2 and H2. They do not require the addition of halide and phosphate stabilizers. The active particles comprise mainly Pd (blue, see picture) with some Au (green) supported on carbon (red).
