Rational Design and Characterization of Bimetallic Gold-Palladium Nanoparticle Catalysts
This feature article covers a long‐term project in our laboratory at the University of Saskatchewan towards the rational synthesis of controlled‐architectures of gold‐palladium bimetallic nanoparticle catalysts for use as ...
Platinum Inhibits Low‐Temperature Dry Lean Methane Combustion through Palladium Reduction in Pd−Pt/Al2O3: An In Situ X‐ray Absorption Study
Palladium–platinum bimetallic catalysts supported on alumina with palladium/platinum molar ratios ranging from 0.25 to 4 are studied in dry lean methane combustion in the temperature range of 200 to 500 °C. Platinum addition ...
Improving the Rates of Pd-Catalyzed Reactions by Exciting the Surface Plasmons of AuPd Bimetallic Nanotriangles
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
Gold nanoparticles exhibit unique optical properties due to surface plasmon oscillations when they interact with light. By utilizing their optical properties, the rates of many chemical reactions have been improved in the ...
In situ X-ray absorption spectroscopic studies of magnetic Fe@FexOy/Pd nanoparticle catalysts for hydrogenation reactions
Core@shell Fe@FexOy nanoparticles (NPs) have attracted a great deal of interest as potential magnetic supports for catalytic metals via galvanic exchange reactions. In this study Fe@FexOy/Pd bimetallic NPs were synthesized ...
Water shifts PdO-catalyzed lean methane combustion to Pt-catalyzed rich combustion in Pd-Pt catalysts: In situ X-ray absorption spectroscopy
The addition of platinum to palladium is known to provide bimetallic catalysts that are relatively active in lean methane combustion in the presence of water at temperatures below 773 K, which is of practical interest for ...
