Catalytic Efficiency of Gold (III) and Gold Nanoparticles on the Oxidation of N-Pentane to NDecane by In Situ Generated Sodium Ferrate under Microwave Irradiation

PP: 11-16
Manish Srivastava, Anamika Srivastava,
Oxidation of aliphatic hydrocarbons by in situ generated sodium ferrate in acid medium catalyzed by gold (III) and gold nanoparticles under microwave irradiation. In following analysis used the citrate reduction and green methodology process for the synthesis of gold nanoparticles. The size of gold nanoparticles was found that the average particle size of individual gold nanoparticles is approximately 20-50nm.Aliphatic hydrocarbons converted to the aliphatic acids by oxidation reaction. In case of gold nanoparticles gives the higher yield as compare to gold (III) catalyst because in the presence of nanoparticles the yield become higher as compared to catalyst in solution phase because in nanoparticles size is decreased (in nm) so surface area become increase so catalytic activity increase many times as compared to catalyst in solution phase.
