Strategies to improve hydrogen activation on gold catalysts


Catalytic reactions involving molecular hydrogen are at the heart of many transformations in the chemical industry. Classically, hydrogenations are carried out on Pd, Pt, Ru or Ni catalysts. However, the use of supported Au catalysts has garnered attention in recent years owing to their exceptional selectivity in hydrogenation reactions. This is despite the limited understanding of the physicochemical aspects of hydrogen activation and reaction on Au surfaces. A rational design of new improved catalysts relies on making better use of the hydrogenating properties of Au. This Review analyses the strategies utilized to improve hydrogen–Au interactions, from addressing the importance of the Au particle size to exploring alternative mechanisms for H2 dissociation on Au cations and Au–ligand interfaces. These insights hold the potential to drive future applications of Au catalysis.
