Selective photocatalytic oxidation of benzene for the synthesis of phenol using engineered Au–Pd alloy nanoparticles supported on titanium dioxide

Author affiliations

Abstract

The selectivity of photocatalytic phenol production from the direct oxidation of benzene can be enhanced by fine adjustment of the morphology and composition of Au–Pd metal nanoparticles supported on titanium dioxide thereby suppressing the decomposition of benzene and evolution of phenolic compounds.
