We demonstrated a sinter-resistant catalytic system based on TiO2-supported Pt nanoparticles coated by a porous SiO2. The porous-SiO2/Pt/TiO2 system could resist sintering up to 750 °C. Significantly, it was catalytically active towards methyl red hydrogenation even after calcination. This strategy should be extendible to other catalytic systems with different compositions.
