  • Silicalite-1 catalyzes ethanol dehydrogenation to acetaldehyde. On the basis of the IR spectra of ethanol adsorbed on its surface, the active sites are believed to be the active oxygen bridges on which dissociative adsorption of ethanol can take place. The active sites are stable compared with the active oxygen bridges on highly dehydrated silica, which also catalyze the selective ethanol dehydrogenation. Since there were trace amounts of acid site on the silicalite-1, simultaneous ethanol dehydration was observed. However, almost all the acid sites disappeared by heating at 1,070 K in the case of silicalite-1 containing 0.7 wt% of sodium ions,more » and ethanol was selectively converted to acetaldehyde. In this treatment, the sodium ions partly poison the active sites for dehydrogenation, but their activity is restored by leaching excess sodium ions from the silicalite-1 under reflux in water.« less
  • Well-defined and monodispersed rhodium nanoparticles as small as approximately 2 nm were encapsulated in situ and stabilized in a mesoporous silica nanoparticle (MSN) framework during the synthesis of the mesoporous material. Although both the activity and selectivity of MSN-encapsulated rhodium nanoparticles in CO hydrogenation could be improved by the addition of manganese oxide as expected, the carbon selectivity for C2 oxygenates (including ethanol and acetaldehyde) was unprecedentedly high at 74.5 % with a very small amount of methanol produced if rhodium nanoparticles were modified by manganese oxide with very close interaction.
  • Small clusters are known to possess reactivity not observed in their bulk analogues, which can make them attractive for catalysis. Their distinct catalytic properties are often hypothesized to result from the large fraction of under-coordinated surface atoms. Here, we show that size-preselected Pt{sub 8-10} clusters stabilized on high-surface-area supports are 40-100 times more active for the oxidative dehydrogenation of propane than previously studied platinum and vanadia catalysts, while at the same time maintaining high selectivity towards formation of propylene over by-products. Quantum chemical calculations indicate that under-coordination of the Pt atoms in the clusters is responsible for the surprisingly highmore » reactivity compared with extended surfaces. We anticipate that these results will form the basis for development of a new class of catalysts by providing a route to bond-specific chemistry, ranging from energy-efficient and environmentally friendly synthesis strategies to the replacement of petrochemical feedstocks by abundant small alkanes.« less
