The Pt-Sn/SiO2 catalysts prepared by selective bimetallic CVD reaction of SnMe4 with Pt particles on SiO2, characterized by EXAFS (extended X-ray absorption fine structure), yield acrylonitrile from NO + propene and methacrylonitrile from NO + isobutene and NO + isobutane with good selectivities, typically 70-93%, in contrast to negligible activity and selectivity (about one order of magnitude lower) with the monometallic Pt/SiO2 catalyst.
