Webinar: Catalyst Preparation and Related Reactions
Date: 27th May 2015
Speaker: Dr. Sankar Meenakshisundaram, Cardiff Catalysis Institute
Abstract: In this lecture, I will give an overview of the recent developments in the synthesis strategies of supported gold- based bimetallic nanoparticle catalysts. The catalytic efficiency of these supported bimetallic nanoparticles, similar to monometallic nanoparticles, depends on their structural characteristics, but with added complexities because of the presence of the second metal. I will discuss three major structural features of supported bimetallic nanoparticles, namely (a) size, (b) composition and (c) nanostruc-
ture, all of which play a crucial role in the resulting overall catalytic performances of the materials. A specific objective of this lecture is to motivate researchers to characterize these supported nanoparticles more thoroughly to investigate their structural features in detail and design based on this knowledge suitable and innovative synthesis strategies to control these properties. In this lecture I will focus only on gold–palladium bimetallic nanoparticles; however the broader scientific message could be extended to other bimetallic catalyst compositions.
