The thermal stability of metal complexes immobilized on the surface of silica and its connection with the catalytic activity
in the oxidation of hydrogen were investigated. High catalytic activity was exhibited by heterogenized platinum and palladium
acetylacetonate near room temperatures in the initial state and by γ-aminopropylsilicas treated with platinum and palladium
complexes. The catalytic activity of the metal complexes correlates with their thermal stability and with the ability to undergo
oxidation to a metal state with high valence.
