The novel mesoporous SBA-15 is successfully used as the support to immobilize transition metal platinum, both in physical and chemical methods, SEM, UV-VIS, FT-IR and N2 adsorption are applied to characterizing these supported catalysts. The results of alcohols oxidation reveal that these supported catalysts have high catalytic activity as their homogenous counterpart does.
