Platinum-promoted Ga/Al2O3 as highly active, selective, and stable catalyst for the dehydrogenation of Propane
A novel catalyst material for the selective dehydrogenation of propane is presented. The catalyst consists of 1000 ppm Pt, 3 wt¿% Ga, and 0.25 wt¿% K supported on alumina. We observed a synergy between Ga and Pt, resulting in a highly active and stable catalyst. Additionally, we propose a bifunctional active phase, in which coordinately unsaturated Ga3+ species are the active species and where Pt functions as a promoter
