- ... Herein, we investigate the mechanisms involved in the selective oxidation of ethanol to acetaldehyde by localised surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) enhanced Au-Cu alloys. Temperature programmed oxidation results in tandem with quantitative in-situ DRIFTS of the surface species under different illumination conditions revealed that the cleaving of CC bonds at the Au-TiO2 interface were inhibited in t ...
