Professor Graham Hutchings at ZIOC RAS

On April 21, Professor Graham Hutchings (Cardiff, UK) gave a talk "Catalysis by Gold" at Zelinsky Institute as part of the new ZIOC educational project. Over the past decades, gold has become in demand as a catalyst for crucial industrial processes. Prof. Graham described one of such processes – vinyl chloride production, where mercury compounds have been used as conventional catalysts. Gold catalysts proved to be highly active and stable in these processes and, therefore, are an attractive alternative to mercurous chloride catalysts.
