Nanoscale metal particles are currently being developed for use as advanced catalytic materials with new chemical and physical properties. As a bridge between homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, nanoscale metal, especially platinum group metal, particles have received renewed attention in catalysis. Accordingly, an effective size control of the metal nanoparticles is important in order to investigate their novel catalytic properties in industrially important reactions. In this context, highly selective and effective catalysts for amination reactions are urgently needed both in the laboratory and in industry. This proposal joins the efforts of 2 academic partners (UCCS/Ecole Centrale de Lille, France and CAMARGO Group/IQ-USP, Brazil) towards a common goal: to carry out a comprehensive study on the correlation between the structural properties of the bimetallic nanoparticles and their catalytic activity and selectivity in the serine synthesis.
