Hutchings Gold-Nanoparticle-Based Catalysts for the Oxidative Esterification of 1,4-Butanediol into Dimethyl Succinate ChemSusChem 6
Twice as nice: The oxidation of 1,4-butanediol and butyrolactone has been investigated over supported gold, palladium and gold-palladium nanoparticles. The oxidation of both hydroxyl groups of α,γ-diols has previously proved to be difficult. Small AuPd alloy nanoparticles on a basic Mg(OH)2 support provide the best catalysts for this reaction.
