Network-Like Platinum Nanosheets Enabled by a Calorific-Effect-Induced-Fusion Strategy for Enhanced Catalytic Hydrogenation Performance

Front Chem. 2022 Jan 5;9:818900. doi: 10.3389/fchem.2021.818900. eCollection 2021.


In this paper, we report the construction of network-like platinum (Pt) nanosheets based on Pt/reduced graphite oxide (Pt/rGO) hybrids by delicately utilizing a calorific-effect-induced-fusion strategy. The tiny Pt species first catalyzed the H2-O2 combination reaction. The released heat triggered the combustion of the rGO substrate under the assistance of the Pt species catalysis, which induced the fusion of the tiny Pt species into a network-like nanosheet structure. The loading amount and dispersity of Pt on rGO are found to be crucial for the successful construction of network-like Pt nanosheets. The as-prepared products present excellent catalytic hydrogenation activity and superior stability towards unsaturated bonds such as olefins and nitrobenzene. The styrene can be completely converted into phenylethane within 60 min. The turnover frequency (TOF) value of network-like Pt nanosheets is as high as 158.14 h-1, which is three times higher than that of the home-made Pt nanoparticles and among the highest value of the support-free bimetallic catalysts ever reported under similar conditions. Furthermore, the well dispersibility and excellent aggregation resistance of the network-like structure endows the catalyst with excellent recyclability. The decline of conversion could be hardly identified after five times recycling experiments.
