Molecular transformations using Au, Pd, and Cu nanoporous skeleton catalysts and the reactivity difference between those catalysts and the corresponding well-known homogeneous molecular catalysts are described. Nanoporous skeleton catalysts (e.g., PdNPore) can be fabricated through dealloying of the corresponding Pd-containing alloy Pd xM 1yM 2z.
