A novel TCVD procedure was employed for the preparation for the preparation of supported gold catalysts using dimethyl gold acetylacetonates Me2Au(acac) as the volatile precursor. Preliminary experiments on the use of TCVD for the preparation of copper catalysts from copper acetylacetonate Cu(acac) were also performed. The reactor design and the preparation protocol employed were used for the first time during current investigation. The impact of calcination conditions, system vacuum along with different pre-treatments have been reported for better understanding of TCVD procedure.
