A colloidal ZnO/Cu nanocatalyst for methanol synthesis

Abstract

Free-standing, ZnO surface decorated Cu nanoparticles of 1–3 nm size were obtained by sequential co-pyrolysis of [Cu(OCHMeCH2NMe2)2] and ZnEt2 in squalane in the absence of additional surfactants and proved to be highly active quasi homogeneous catalysts for methanol synthesis from CO and H2.
