Carbon nanotube–gold nanohybrids for selective catalytic oxidation of alcohols

Author affiliations

Abstract

Gold nanoparticles were deposited on carbon nanotubes to provide access to a nanohybrid structure which was involved in the aerobic oxidation of alcohols. The nanohybrid-catalyzed reaction was shown to be highly efficient under mild conditions (i.e. room temperature, air) and selective oxidation of alcohols to the corresponding acids or aldehydes could be achieved, depending on the reaction conditions.
