- Alloy nanoparticles (NPs) of gold and palladium were found to be more active in oxidation of benzyl alcohols than supported gold or supported palladium NPs. The enhanced activity of benzyl alcohol oxidation at the surface of the alloy NPs can be explained by the charge heterogeneity. To confirm the charge heterogeneity, simulations using the Density function theory (DFT) were carried out. TEM, EDX, UV-Vis and XPS were also employed to investigate the properties of the gold and palladium alloy NPs as well as gold, palladium monometallic catalysts.
