Selective oxidation of cyclohexene through gold functionalized silica monolith microreactors (2015)
Journal Article
Alotaibi, M. T., Taylor, M. J., Liu, D., Beaumont, S. K., & Kyriakou, G. (2016). Selective oxidation of cyclohexene through gold functionalized silica monolith microreactors. Surface science, 646, 179-185. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.susc.2015.10.039

Two simple, reproducible methods of preparing evenly distributed Au nanoparticle containing mesoporous silica monoliths are investigated. These Au nanoparticle containing monoliths are subsequently investigated as flow reactors for the selective oxid...

Highly selective hydrogenation of furfural over supported Pt nanoparticles under mild conditions (2015)
Journal Article
Taylor, M. J., Durndell, L. J., Isaacs, M. A., Parlett, C. M., Wilson, K., Lee, A. F., & Kyriakou, G. (2016). Highly selective hydrogenation of furfural over supported Pt nanoparticles under mild conditions. Applied catalysis. B, Environmental, 180, 580-585 . https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apcatb.2015.07.006

The selective liquid phase hydrogenation of furfural to furfuryl alcohol over Pt nanoparticles supported on SiO₂, ZnO, γ-Al2O₃, CeO₂ is reported under extremely mild conditions. Ambient hydrogen pressure, and temperatures as low as 50 °C are shown su... Read More about Highly selective hydrogenation of furfural over supported Pt nanoparticles under mild conditions.
