Tamao Ishida, Naoto Kinoshita, Hiroko Okatsu, Tomoki Akita, Takashi Takei and Masatake Haruta Influence of the Support and the Size of Gold Clusters on Catalytic Activity for Glucose Oxidation Angewandte Chemie International Edition 47
Not all that glitters… The activity of supported gold nanoparticles depends on the method used for their preparation. Gold clusters of about 2 nm in diameter were deposited on nonreducible metal oxides and carbon materials by solid grinding of a volatile organogold complex in a ball mill and subsequent calcination (see scheme). Au/ZrO2 and Au/Al2O3 prepared in this way were extremely efficient catalysts for the aerobic oxidation of glucose.
