Abstract

Supported gold nanoparticles can be highly effective as catalysts for a broad range of reactions. Most notably, for reactions such as the hydrochlorination of acetylene and the oxidation of carbon monoxide supported gold nanoparticles show exceptionally high activity. In this paper some of the discussion points raised at the Irsee VI Symposium held in July 2013 will be presented. The preparation of active supported gold nanoparticles will be described for the hydrochlorination of acetylene and the oxidation of carbon monoxide.
