Abstract

Highly active/stable inverse catalysts of nano-oxides on large gold particles are designed and tailored. For the gas-phase oxidation of alcohols as a model reaction, the experimental and theoretical results verify that the catalyst activity depends on the gold-oxide interface, and the anti-sintering feature of such an inverse structure endows the catalyst with high stability.
