- ... Different sized Pt nanoparticles supported on carbon nanotubes were prepared and then applied in selective oxidation of glycerol in a base-free condition to understand the size effects. It is shown that the turnover frequency of glycerol increases with Pt particle size to a maximum at the mean size of 2.5 nm followed by a decline with a further increase in size, which may be due to strongly adsorb ...
