- ... Catalytic hydrothermal conversion of highly concentrated glycerol to lactic acid was investigated over bimetallic CuAuₓ (x = 0.01–0.04) nanoparticle catalysts. The bimetallic CuAuₓ nanoparticles were prepared by the wetness chemical reduction method and characterized by XRD, TEM, HRTEM, XPS, and atomic absorption spectrophotometry techniques. Metallic Cu and Au nanoparticles coalesced to form seco ...
