Enhanced Activity and Stability of Cu–Mn and Cu–Ag Catalysts Supported on Nanostructured Mesoporous CeO2 for CO Oxidation
Abstract:Cu, Mn and Ag nanoparticles are loaded on nanostructured mesoporous CeO2 as catalysts for CO oxidation. The Cu/CeO2 catalyst exhibits an obvious deactivation after the stability test at 95 °C for 60 h. This is caused by carbon deposition as confirmed by FTIR spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy and thermogravimetry-differential scanning calorimetry-mass spectroscopy (TG-DSC-MS) analysis. It is found that the Cu–Mn or Cu–Ag binary metal catalysts supported on the nanostructured CeO2 exhibit much improved activity and stability in CO oxidation. In ease case, carbon deposition is absent in the similar stability test, due to enhanced oxygen adsorption property.
