|Title:||Effect of interaction between CuO and CeO2 on the performance of CuO-CeO2 catalysts for selective oxidation of CO in H2-rich streams|
Carbon monoxide oxidation
|Abstract:||A series of CuO–CeO2 catalysts have been prepared by different methods and the effects of interaction between CuO and CeO2 on the performance of CuO-CeO2 catalysts for selective oxidation of CO in H2-rich streams have been investigated. The results show that HY-CuO-CeO2 with strong interaction and synergistic effect between interfacial CuO and CeO2 exhibits superior catalytic activity, especially at low temperatures. For HY-CuO-CeO2, the temperature of 50 % CO conversion is only 75 °C and the temperature window of CO conversions up to 99.0 % is about 30 oC wide, from 120–140 °C. The strong interaction between copper and cerium oxide promotes the reduction of highly dispersed CuO species, the formation and stability of abundant Cu+ species and the production of abundant oxygen vacancies and lattice oxygen of copper oxide.|
