Well-Defined Metallic and Bimetallic Clusters Supported on Oxides and Zeolites

  • Javier Guzman


Immobilized metallic and bimetallic complexes and clusters on oxide or zeolite supports made from well-defined molecular organometallic precursors have drawn wide attention because of their novel size-dependent properties and their potential applications for catalysis. It is speculated that nearly molecular supported catalysts may combine the high activity and selectivity of homogenous catalysts with the ease of separation and robustness of operation of heterogeneous catalysts. This chapter is a review of the synthesis and physical characterization of metallic and bimetallic complexes and clusters supported on metal oxides and zeolites prepared from organometallic precursors of well-defined molecularity and stoichiometry.
