Abstract

A Raney copper film obtained from a Cu-Al alloy deposited by evaporation on a steel plate was found to behave as a copper on alumina catalyst. Contrary to what is found when the Raney is prepared directly from the alloy, prereduction with CO caused an increase in the catalytic activity for CO oxidation.
