- ... The performance of naked nanocatalyst 1, derived from Chini cluster ([Pt₁₅(CO)₃₀]²⁻), has been evaluated with special reference to the analogous catalysts 2 and 3 which were derived from the same [Pt₁₅(CO)₃₀]²⁻ but supported by MCM-41 and the water soluble polymer PDADMAC, respectively. ...

- ... Understanding the 3-D distribution and nature of active sites in heterogeneous catalysts is critical to developing structure–function relationships. However, this is difficult to achieve in microporous materials as there is little relative z-contrast between active and inactive framework elements (e.g., Al, O, P, and Si), making them difficult to differentiate with electron microscopies. We have a ...

- ... A systematic molecular level and spectroscopic investigation is presented to show the cooperative role of Brønsted acid and Lewis acid sites in zeolites for the conversion of methanol. Extra-framework alkaline-earth metal containing species and aluminum species decrease the number of Brønsted acid sites, as protonated metal clusters are formed. A combined experimental and theoretical effort shows ...
