Abstract

The catalytic performance of Pt metal at the tips of carbon nanotubes (CNT@Pt), which was prepared by ethylene decomposition over Pt/MgO, was compared with that of Pt metal on the outer surface of CNT (Pt/CNT). CNT@Pt showed excellent catalytic performance toward the hydrogenation of α, β-unsaturated aldehydes to unsaturated alcohols, which was similar to that of Pt/CNT and resulted from a strong interaction between Pt metal and the CNT. Graphical Abstract: Pt metal particles at the tips of CNTs showed excellent activity for the selective hydrogenation of α, β-unsaturated aldehydes to unsaturated alcohols similarly to Pt metal particles supported on the outer surface of CNTs.[Figure not available: see fulltext.]
