The effects of sub-nanometer atomic layer deposition films of titania and alumina are compared for the acrolein hydrogenation selectivity of Pt/SrTiO3 catalysts. The titania-overcoated catalyst is similar to strong metal-support interaction catalysts formed by high temperature reduction, with a thin titania film on top of the supported Pt nanoparticles and an increase in allyl alcohol selectivity, neither of which are observed for the alumina-overcoated catalyst. Graphical Abstract: [Figure not available: see fulltext.].
