Herein we show that a previously unappreciated combination of CrAuPd alloy nanoparticles and amine-grafted silica support facilitates the liberation of CO-free H-2 from dehydrogenation of formic acid with record activity in the absence of any additives at room temperature. Furthermore, their excellent catalytic stability makes them isolable and reusable heterogeneous catalysts in the formic acid dehydrogenation.
