Abstract

It is shown that the catalytic properties of Pd can be fine-tuned by rationally varying the metal–support interaction through the formation of bimetallic nanoparticles with a support after hydrogen reduction; in the hydrogenolysis of a –CHOHCHOH– vicinal diol unit, the ability to break the C–C bond over the C–O bond is found to increase significantly with the decrease in d-band filling, while the ability to break the C–O bond is enhanced by the upshift of the d-band center of modified Pd.
