Sufficient information is now available to lead the intending user of a supported noble metal catalyst to that combination of metal and support most likely to catalyse the reaction he desires to perform. However, each combination can be prepared by a number of different techniques, and the resulting catalysts need to be evaluated since their performance in the desired reaction will depend on a number of factors that are still only poorly understood. The purpose of this article is to describe some of the precautions which need to be observed in evaluating catalysts for liquid-phase reactions.
