Preparation of noble metal particles dispersed mesoporous carbons and their functions
We report the simple preparation of noble metal particles dispersed in highly mesoporous activated carbons. The activated carbons were prepared by activating pitch containing rare earth metal complex and rare metal complexes by steam. The activated carbons obtained showed the high catalytic activities for the hydrogenation of unsaturated compounds of large size such as methyl linoleate and 1,3-cyclooctadiene.
