Abstract

The catalytic oxidation of C//2H//4 and C//3H//6 was studied over silicasupported Pt, Pd, Ir, Ru and Rh. The specific activities fell in the order listed and correlated with the percent d-character of the metal and fairly well with its atomic radius. The partial oxidation products were characterized. Acetaldehyde and acetic acid were produced from C//2H//4 in all cases, but only with Pd and Ir were the quantities significant. Products from C//3H//6 were varied. C//3 productsn substantial amounts were formed over Rh, Ru, and Pd, the selectivity decreasing in the order given. somewhat smaller amounts of C//2 products were also formed over these catalysts.
