A high-throughput method for the screening of miniature mesoporous metal oxide oxidation catalysts were developed. This was achieved by using multiple robotic techniques including 3D printing. The catalysts (Co3O4, Au/Co3O4, Pd/Co3O4 and Co/Mn mesoporous metal oxides) were screened for their activity towards the oxidation of morin.
