Applications & references

Platinum nanoparticles are formed by gas phase loading of the volatile platinum compounds on metal-organic frameworks and by subsequent reduction with 100 bar hydrogen. For instance, the Pt component shows high catalytic activity in solvent-free and base-free oxidation of alcohols in air at room temperature.
