Abstract

A study has been carried out on the selectivity of titania-supported rhodium catalysts in n-butane hydrogenolysis. It is concluded that incorporation of the rhodium precursor onto the titania surface via ion exchange leads to a less pronounced development of Strong Metal-Support Interactions and thus to an homogeneous distribution of active sites on the catalyst surface.
