City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has developed a facile and robust wet-chemical method for the synthesis of a series of amorphous Pd-based nanoparticles, which can be applied to efficiently catalyze the epoxide alcoholysis reaction and various electrochemical reactions, including hydrogen evolution reaction and alcohol oxidation reaction
Amorphous nanomaterials with long-range disordered structures are highly efficient catalysts for various catalytic reactions. However, the controlled preparation of amorphous noble metal-based nanomaterials still remains challenging. CityU has developed a novel and facile wet-chemical method to synthesize various amorphous Pd-based nanoparticles in large scale, which exhibit excellent catalytic performance for epoxide alcoholysis reaction and diverse electrochemical reactions
