Image:Role of perimeter interfaces in catalysis by gold nanoparticles

This review was compiled based on the Introductory Talk of Faraday Discussion 152: Gold (at Cardiff University, on July 2011).

Gold can be deposited as nanoparticles (NPs) of 2 to 5 nm in diameter on a variety of materials such as metal oxides and carbides, carbons, organic polymers and exhibits surprisingly high catalytic activities for many reactions in both gas and liquid phases. The mechanisms for the genesis of catalysis by gold NPs is discussed based on real powder catalysts and model single crystal catalysts for two simple reactions, low-temperature oxidation of CO in which gold NPs catalysts are exceptionally active and for dihydrogen dissociation in which gold NPs catalysts are still poorly active. For both the two reactions, it has been revealed that reactions take place at perimeter interfaces around gold NPs.

Understanding how molecules can restructure the surfaces of heterogeneous catalysts under reaction conditions requires methods that can visualize atoms in real space and time. We applied a newly developed aberration-corrected environmental transmission electron microscopy to show that adsorbed carbon monoxide (CO) molecules caused the {100} facets of a gold nanoparticle to reconstruct during CO oxidation at room temperature. The CO molecules adsorbed at the on-top sites of gold atoms in the reconstructed surface, and the energetic favorability of this reconstructed structure was confirmed by ab initio calculations and image simulations. This atomic-scale visualizing method can be applied to help elucidate reaction mechanisms in heterogeneous catalysis.

The development of active and stable catalysts without noble metals for low-temperature CO oxidation under an ambient atmosphere remains a significant challenge. Here we report that tricobalt tetraoxide nanorods not only catalyse CO oxidation at temperatures as low as –77 °C but also remain stable in a moist stream of normal feed gas. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy demonstrates that the Co3O4 nanorods predominantly expose their {110} planes, favouring the presence of active Co3+ species at the surface. Kinetic analyses reveal that the turnover frequency associated with individual Co3+ sites on the nanorods is similar to that of the conventional nanoparticles of this material, indicating that the significantly higher reaction rate that we have obtained with a nanorod morphology is probably due to the surface richness of active Co3+ sites. These results show the importance of morphology control in the preparation of base transition-metal oxides as highly efficient oxidation catalysts.

Size matters: Gold clusters (<2.0 nm), but not gold nanoparticles, deposited on alkali-treated titanosilicalite-1 enable O2 and H2O to react to give hydroperoxides (-OOH). This species transfers to neighboring Ti sites to form Ti-OOH, which is capable of propene epoxidation with molecular oxygen alone to give propene epoxide (PO).

Gold clusters were deposited in a narrow size distribution on porous coordination polymers (PCPs) by solid grinding with volatile dimethyl AuIII acetylactonate. The mean diameter could be minimized down to 1.5 nm for Al-containing PCPs. Gold clusters on PCPs showed noticeably high catalytic activity in the aerobic oxidation of alcohols. Product selectivity was tunable by the selection of PCP supports in benzyl alcohol oxidation.

Supported gold nanoparticles exhibit high catalytic activity not only at low temperatures but also under the presence of moisture. The effect of moisture on CO oxidation over Au/TiO2, Au/Al2O3, and Au/SiO2 was studied at 273 K. It was found that the catalytic activities are enhanced by moisture by up to two orders of magnitude, and that the moisture effect depends on the type of oxide support.

Gold can be highly dispersed on a variety of metal oxides by coprecipitation and deposition-precipitation followed by calcination in air. Such supported gold differs in catalytic nature from unsupported gold particles and exhibits high catalytic activities for low-temperature oxidation of CO. In the temperature range of −10 to 65°C, the activation energies for CO oxidation were 8.2 kcal/mol (Au/TiO2), 8.4 kcal/mol (Au/α-Fe2O3), and 3.9 kcal/mol (Au/Co3O4). The rate of CO oxidation is zero order with respect to CO for the three catalysts, and 0.2-0.3 for Au/TiO2 and Au/Co3O4 and zero order for Au/α-Fe2O3 with respect to O2. By taking into consideration TPD and FT-IR data, a mechanism is proposed in which CO adsorbed on gold particles migrates toward the perimeter on support oxides and there it reacts with adsorbed oxygen to form bidentate carbonate species. The decomposition of the carbonate intermediate is considered to be rate-determining.

A variety of gold catalysts can be used to catalyze the oxidation of carbon monoxide at temperatures as low as −70 °C and are stable in a moistened gas atmosphere. The novel catalysts, prepared by coprecipitation, are composed of ultra-fine gold particles and one of the oxides of 3d transition metals of group VIII, namely, Fe, Co, and Ni.
