Abstract

Named and flamed: Bimetallic Pt-Pd/ZrO2 catalysts with different Pt/Pd atomic ratios and high dispersion of the metal nanoparticles are prepared by a single-step flame-spray pyrolysis. The catalysts show excellent activity and tunable product selectivity for the solvent-free hydrogenation of the ketone model compounds cyclopentanone and acetophenone.
