Gold and nickel particles immobilized on alumina were prepared by the metal vapor synthesis and anionic adsorption methods. The dispersion of metals was determined by X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy. The activity of nanoparticles, tested in model catalytic reactions of CCl4 addition to multiple bonds and allyl isomerization of allylbenzene, changes in a wide range (from 1 to 3000 (mole of product) (mole of Au)−1 h−1) and is parallel to the chromatographically measured heats of adsorption of the corresponding unsaturated substrates. The heat of adsorption of unsaturated hydrocarbons can serve as a criterion for the efficiency of the gold-containing catalyst in olefin conversion.
