Carbon nanotube-supported gold nanoparticles as efficient catalysts for selective oxidation of cellobiose into gluconic acid in aqueous medium

Abstract

Gold nanoparticles loaded on nitric acid-pretreated carbon nanotubes are efficient for the selective oxidation of cellobiose by molecular oxygen to gluconic acid in aqueous medium without pH control; a gluconic acid yield of 80% has been obtained at 145 °C.
