Novel one-pot synthesis of hierarchically porous Pd/C monoliths by a co-gelation method

Described is a simple one-pot route for the synthesis of hierarchically porous carbon supported palladium (Pd/C) monoliths with a three-dimensional pore network via self-assembly under basic conditions of a resol polymer. Textural and morphological characterization of the Pd/C monoliths was carried out using nitrogen sorption analysis and scanning electron microscope. Formation of Pd nanoparticles ranging from 35 to 60 nm was observed. Evaluation of catalytic activity for styrene hydrogenation was performed using the Pd/C material as heterogeneous catalyst in batch mode. Studies revealed that the monoliths showed leaching and catalytic activity similar to a commercial Pd/C catalyst.

Isolation, Characterization, and Identification of Catalytically Active Species in the MoO3/SiO2 Catalyst during Solid Acid Catalyzed Reactions



We report the isolation, characterization, and identification of the catalytically active species formed during various acid-catalyzed reactions if silica-supported MoO3 was used as a catalyst. We have reported previously the synthesis and extensive characterization of the silica-supported MoO3catalyst prepared by the sol–gel process with ammonium heptamolybdate and ethyl silicate-40 as molybdenum and silica precursors, respectively. The TEM images showed uniformly distributed MoO3 nanoparticles on the high-surface area mesoporous silica support and high acidity (0.9 mmol g−1) by using temperature-programmed desorption of ammonia (NH3-TPD) analysis. This catalyst has already shown high activity for various acid-catalyzed reactions. To understand the nature of catalytically active species formed during the reaction, the liquid-phase esterification of acetic acid and ethanol was studied as a probe reaction with very high acid conversion (83 %) in 8 h. During esterification, the reaction mixture turned blue, which indicated a change in the nature of the catalyst under reaction conditions. These catalytically active species formed in the reaction mixture were isolated and extensively characterized by using FTIR, Raman, powder XRD, BET surface area, NH3-TPD, energy dispersive X-ray, and TEM analysis. The characterization results revealed the in situ formation of silicomolybdic acid on the silica surface in the presence of water, which acts as catalytically active species responsible for the acid-catalyzed reactions.
