Mixed noblility: We show that the modification of a gold/carbon catalyst with platinum or palladium produces stable and recyclable catalysts for the selective oxidation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) to 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA): the support and nanoparticle chemistry directly mediate the selective oxidation of terminal hydroxyl groups in bio-derived HMF. This finding is a significant advance over current conversion technology because of the technological importance of FDCA.
