Cerium oxide in catalysis can be used both as support and as a catalyst itself. Ceria catalyses many oxidations reactions, its excellent catalytic properties are due to its store oxygen storage capacity (OSC) and the reticular defects present on its surface. Different morphologies expose different reticular planes, and different reticular planes can expose different amounts of defects. The preparation method of cerium oxide can influence the surface area, morphology, and the number of defects in the sample. This work is focused on different preparation methods for gold nanoparticles supported on 1D nanostructures of cerium oxide prepared via electrospinning, their XRD, DRUV-Vis and Raman characterizations, and their catalytic performance on the oxidation reaction of HMF to FDCA.
