Abstract

Trimetallic Au–Pd–Pt nanoparticles have been supported on activated carbon by the sol-immobilisation method. They are found to be highly active and selective catalysts for the solvent-free aerobic oxidation of benzyl alcohol. The addition of Pt promotes the selectivity to the desired product benzaldehyde at the expense of toluene formation. Detailed aberration corrected STEM-XEDS analysis confirmed that the supported particles are indeed Au–Pd–Pt ternary alloys, but also identified composition fluctuations from particle-to-particle which vary systematically with nanoparticle size.
