Abstract

Noble metal nanoparticle containing [Me]x-MCM-41 were synthesized using surfactant stabilised palladium, iridium and rhodium nanoparticles in the synthesis gel. The materials were characterised with XRD, ICP AES, TA, TEM and nitrogen sorption, which showed that the nanoparticles were present inside the pores of MCM-41. The [Me]x-MCM-41 were found to be active and selective catalysts in the hydrogenation of cyclic olefins such as cyclohexene, cyclooctene, cyclododecene and norbornene.
