Catalytic Pd–Ag nanoparticles immobilized on fiber glass by surface self-propagating thermal synthesis


Pd–Ag nanoparticles with different Pd/Ag ratio were deposited onto fiber glass by using the technique of surface self-propagating thermal synthesis (SSTS) and characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), atomic absorption spectroscopy (ААS), and EXAFS spectroscopy. The samples reduced in hydrogen exhibited the formation of Pd–Ag alloy whose tentative structure and composition were suggested. Thermally scheduled reduction of Pd–Ag catalysts in hydrogen made the Ag atoms partially oxidized. Reported are the catalytic properties of synthesized Pd–Ag samples in selective hydrogenation of acetylene.
