A discussion covers four of the unresolved issues in Au-catalyzed CO oxidation, i.e., the importance of the nature of support on catalyst activity, the Au oxidation state necessary for high activity, the sensitivity of the activity to the moisture level in the reaction feed, and reasons for the high activity in small Au particle size and for the strong dependence on particle size and specific morphology; the current understanding of these issues based on available experimental evidence and computational investigations; and the aspects that remain unresolved. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2007 AIChE Annual Meeting (Salt Lake City, UT 11/4-9/2007).
