Earth-abundant metal catalysts, especially Ni, are highly favourable in heterogeneous reactions compared with noble metal ones.

Abstract

Earth-abundant metal catalysts, especially Ni, are highly favourable in heterogeneous reactions compared with noble metal ones. Herein, Ni nanoparticle catalysts supported on Vulcan carbon (VCX) support were prepared through a simple impregnation-reduction method and utilized for the acceptorless dehydrogenation of primary amines to secondary amines. The best performance was achieved with Ni(A)/VXC with Ni particle size of 11.9 nm at 150 °C. Smaller or larger particle sizes resulted in a lower TOF, indicating a structure-sensitive activity. This work may serve as inspiration for further investigation into acceptorless dehydrogenation using non-noble metal catalysts
