Golden times: A microfibrous-structured Au catalyst is successfully obtained by performing galvanic deposition of Au on a thin-sheet sinter-locked 8 μm diameter Cu fiber. This new catalyst, with excellent heat conductivity, shows a remarkable low-temperature activity for gas-phase selective oxidation of several typical alcohols. A synergistic effect between AuCu alloy and Cu2O formed in situ during the reaction drives, by nature, the reaction toward completion (see figure).
