Formulation of mechanisms for gold-catalysed reactions

  • 712 Accesses

  • 48 Citations

Abstract

The recent literature on simple gas-phase reactions involving CO, O2, H2, H2O and CO2 catalysed by gold is surveyed and mechanisms derived from the literature are presented and analysed. They provide a template by which further results can be assessed and additional necessary study stimulated. Ways in which the published results can be used to develop catalysts with the necessary activity and stability for practical applications are indicated.

Geoffrey Bond held academic posts at Leeds and Hull Universities before joining Johnson Matthey plc in 1962 as Head of Catalysis Research. In 1970 he was appointed Professor in Brunel University Chemistry Department, and is now an Emeritus Professor at that University

David Thompson had a special interest in catalysis by gold, having previously held research posts in ICI and Johnson Matthey plc where he was involved in precious metal catalysis projects. He was also consultant to World Gold Council in London and Project AuTEK at Mintek in South Africa. He died on 17 June 2009.
