Abstract

Nickel and iridium supported on SiO2 (Ni-Ir/SiO2) acted as an effective and reusable heterogeneous catalyst for hydrogenation of olefins, and it showed higher activity and selectivity than the monometallic counterparts. The Ni-Ir/SiO2 catalyst has small Ni-Ir alloy and monometallic Ni particles, and the high catalytic performance can be attributed to the isolated Ni atom in the Ni-Ir alloys.
