Catalyst loading on promoted supports such as silica or alumina is of interest due to the weight and expense of solid homogeneous catalysts. High dispersion of active sites are of interest, and there has been research and suggested methods.
An article by some researchers at the University of South Florida, suggest that wetting the surface of the support with a polar solvent such as ethanol, butanol, propanol, etc to increase dispersion of the catalyst adhesion to the support.
Has anyone tried this method?
Increase of catalyst dispersion by polar solvents
