Research highlight: Experimental and DFT investigations on enhanced stability found on Re-, Rh-, and Nb-promoted Pt/WOx/γ-Al2O3 catalyst during aqueous-phase glycerol hydrogenolysis

What the density functional theory (DFT) can elucidate:

  • The addition of WOx can completely prevent Pt leaching
  • Enrichment of electron at Pt species when adding Re enhancing activity of Pt
  • Doping Re also can inhibit Pt sintering
