Gold (~1%) has been supported on the mixed oxides Al2O3–CuO–Mn2O3 with molar compositions 1:1:1, 1:0.7:0.3, 1:0.3:0.7, prepared by spray pyrolysis method. The supports and catalysts have
been characterized by TG, DTA, N2 physisorption, XRD, SEM, and TEM methods and tested for CO oxidation (25–300 °C). The catalysts revealed high specific surface
area and amorphous form for compositions 1:0.7:0.3 and 1:0.3:0.7. Gold deposited on the supports lowered the T50 values by 50–80 °C. The highest CO conversion was obtained for 1:1:1 composition.

Novel magnesium oxo-fluoride supports containing different amounts of MgO, prepared by the sol–gel method have been proposed
for the synthesis of gold catalysts. The MgF2–MgO supports have mesoporous structure and their surface area is a few times larger than those of pure MgF2 or pure MgO. Gold catalysts have been prepared by impregnation of the MgF2–MgO supports with HAuCl4 in the amount corresponding to 1 wt.% Au. The gold catalysts has been characterized by XRD, TEM measurements and the catalytic
activity in CO oxidation at temperatures 30–300 °C have been performed. The Au/MgF2–MgO catalysts show higher activities (depending on the content of MgO in the support) as compared to Au/MgF2 and Au/MgO prepared under the same conditions. Their activities fall into the upper range of gold catalysts supported on
other carrier reported in literature.

The oxidation of cyclohexane to cyclohexanone, cyclohexanol, and adipic acid, which are important raw materials in nylon industry, is still being challenged in conventional processes. Microreactors and gold catalysts are both widely researched areas at present, so an effort was made to make use of collaborative properties of both. In this study, stainless steel microcapillary coated with a supported nano-gold catalyst was prepared, characterized, and employed for the oxidation of cyclohexane. Under the temperature of 180 °C, residence time of 4 min, reaction pressure of 3 MPa and molar ratio of oxygen to cyclohexane of 0.3:1, the conversion of cyclohexane was 2.09%, with the selectivity of cyclohexanol, 29.37%; cyclohexanone, 39.89%; cyclohexyl hydroperoxide, 2.46%; and adipic acid, 18.87%. Experiments showed that stainless steel microcapillary coated with a supported nano-gold catalyst in cyclohexane oxidation is a feasible process; the reaction time is very short, and the process operation runs safely.
