The oxidation of four butanediols under base-free conditions has been investigated using a set of Au, Pd and Pt catalysts prepared using sol-immobilization. The supported nanoparticles are found to be active with bimetallic alloys having much higher activity when compared with the monometallic counterparts. In general the AuPt catalysts are the most active and in all cases the corresponding C4 oxidation products were observed with high selectivity; sequential reaction of these products leads to the formation of acetic acid as an undesired by-product.
