Abstract

Rhodium (Rh) has received widespread attention in fundamental catalytic research and numerous industrial catalytic applications. Compared to homogeneous catalysts, Rh-based nanomaterials as heterogeneous catalysts are much easier to separate and collect after usage, making them more suitable for commercial use. To this purpose, there has been a constant demand in constructing stable and highly active Rh-based nanomaterials. In contrast to Rh-based solid solutions with a random distribution of metallic atoms in the lattice, Rh-based intermetallic compounds (IMCs) with a fixed stoichiometric ratio and an ordered atomic arrangement can ensure the homogenous distribution of active sites and structural stability in the catalytic process. In this review, we concentrate on the fabrication of Rh-based IMCs for catalytic applications. Various synthetic methods and protocols for the controlled preparation of Rh-based IMC are illustrated. Meanwhile, the catalytic applications and corresponding catalytic mechanisms are discussed. In addition, personal perspectives about the remaining challenges and prospects in this field are provided. We believe this review will be useful in directing the development of Rh-based IMC catalysts for heterogeneous catalysis. © 2023 Published by Elsevier B.V. on behalf of Chinese Chemical Society and Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences.
