Abstract

A versatile synthetic method was applied for the preparation of Sn containing bimetallic catalysts. The synthesis was performed by simply mixing the super hydride [LiB(C2H5)(3)H], with a metal (Ru, Rh or Ir) salt and an organotin complex in tetrahydrofuran solvent without using any surfactant. This leads to the formation of monodispersed M-Sn (M = Ru, Rh or Ir) bimetallic nanoparticles (NPs). These bimetallic catalysts show high performances in the hydrogenolysis of ester to the corresponding alcohol.
