Gold–palladium bimetallic nanoparticle catalysts prepared by a deposition–precipitation method were effective for aerobic oxidation of glycerol to carboxylic acids. The role of palladium was to suppress C–C bond cleavage that is responsible for the formation of C2 by-product molecules. The nanoparticles were observed by microscope techniques, which further enabled characterizing the respective locations of Au and Pd within the particles.
