The Pd catalysts were employed to evaluate if the knowledge gained from methane combustion can be applied for the ethanol oxidation. Both reactions occur on the same active sites. However, high ethanol reactivity towards oxidation and its interaction with supports lead to a different catalytic performance than the methane one.
