    Abstract:

    Numerous environmental problems exist which may be solved using catalysis, in particular by supported precious metal nanoparticles. We focus here on the use of gold as a catalyst, which since the 1980s has become an important field of research. The use of gold-based catalysts for tackling environmental issues is discussed, within the context of projects currently being undertaken within the environment theme of the UK Catalysis Hub; the applications of gold catalysis for utilisation and valorisation of biomass derivatives, treatment of waste water using photo-catalysis and vehicle emissions control are considered…
