Abstract

This proposal focuses on facile, versatile, and environmentally friendly methodologies to obtain metal oxide-based hybrid materials decorated with metallic nanoparticles displaying controlled features. Specifically, we will focus on TiO2, Cu2O, CuO, MnO2, WO3 and graphene oxide (GO) as the oxide materials, which will be synthesized in different morphologies (spheres, wires, cubes, octahedrons, dendrites and two-dimensional structures) for subsequent deposition of metal nanoparticles (such as Au, Ag, Pd, Pt, Rh and Ir) at their surfaces. The hybrid materials will be produced by a seeded growth approach, in which the oxide acts as a physical template for the deposition of metal particles from the reduction of its corresponding metal precursors. In the next step, the hybrid materials will be employed as catalysts for a variety of reactions that are relevant in the context of chemical synthesis. In particular, we focus on four classes of catalytic systems: i) heterogeneous catalysis (reduction of 4-nitrophenol, Suzuki coupling, oxidation of model compounds in the liquid phase, ii) electrocatalysis (relevant reactions in the context of fuel cells); iii) photocatalysis (oxidative degradation of dyes mediated by visible light); and iv) plasmonic catalysis (intensification of catalytic processes by the excitation of the surface plasmon resonance in Ag and Au nanoparticles). As nanomaterials obtained in this project will have controlled features, they will enable the systematic investigation on how their catalytic activities vary as a function on their physicochemical parameters such as size, composition, structure and architecture.
