Paper: Journal of Catalysis
A paper entitled “Decomposition of formic acid over silica encapsulated and amine functionalised gold nanoparticles” was published in Journal of Catalysis with Jerrik Mielby as first author. J. Catal: Volume 345, January 2017, Pages 149-156

Highlights:
-Small and uniform gold nanoparticles are encapsulated in amine functionalised silica.
-The catalyst is highly active for vapour phase decomposition of formic acid into H2.
-Kinetic isotope labelling indicates that the formation of H2 is rate-limiting.
-In situ ATR-FTIR indicates that the active site is an amine functionalised Au atom.
