Direct synthesis of hydrogen peroxide from H2/O2 using Pd/Al2O3 catalysts
- 107 Downloads
Pd/Al2O3 catalysts were prepared by the impregnation method and were used for the direct formation of hydrogen peroxide from H2 and O2. The H2O2 concentration and selectivity were strongly dependent on the solubility of hydrogen in the reaction medium. The modification of the support by halogenate has a beneficial effect on the selectivity. The state of the active Pd on Pd/Al2O3 catalysts was studied using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and Pd(0) was found to be active.
