AbstractRecently, gold has been proposed as an active phase for the hydrogenation of nitro-arenes. This metal has been rarely used in hydrogenation reactions because gold does not possess hydrogen chemisorption capacity. However, small gold particles behave differently and they may be able to chemisorb hydrogen to same extent, leading to possible activity in hydrogenation reactions. This may provide an advantage because the reactions catalyzed by highly dispersed gold particles may be better controlled. In this work, TiO2 and SiO2 supported Au catalysts were prepared by the deposition–precipitation method using urea and NaOH to precipitate the metallic component at different temperatures and hydrogen pressures. The metal loading for all the catalysts was 1 wt%. The catalysts were characterized by X-ray diffraction, high resolution transmission electron microscopy among others. The catalysts were then evaluated in the hydrogenation of nitrobenzene in a batch type reactor at 25 °C. All the catalysts were active in the hydrogenation reaction and the major obtained product was aniline.Gold Nitrobenzene Hydrogenation Heterogeneous
