Abstract

The interfacial interactions between late transition metal/metal oxide nanoparticles and oxide supports impact catalysts’ activity and stability. Here, we report the use of isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC), electron microscopy and density functional theory (DFT) to explore periodic trends in the enthalpy of nanoparticle-support interactions for late transition metal and metal oxide nanoparticles on layered niobate and silicate supports. Data for Co(OH)2, hydroxyiridate-capped IrOx.nH2O, Ni(OH)2, CuO, and Ag2O nanoparticles were added to previously obtained data for Rh(OH)3 grown on nanosheets of TBA0.24H0.76Ca2Nb3O10 and a layered silicate. ITC measurements showed stronger bonding energies in the order Ag
