This study investigates the activity of transition and alkaline-earth metal-doped catalysts supported on ceria or zirconia for the NOx-assisted oxidation of diesel particulate. A series of Cu- and Fe-impregnated catalysts over CeO2 and ZrO2 supportswere prepared by incipientwetness impregnation and characterized by BET, X-ray diffraction (XRD), and temperature-programmed reduction (TPR) experiments while their catalytic activity was investigated in NOx-assisted reaction by means of temperature programmed oxidation experiments (TPO). Higher activity was achieved by copper modified catalysts; the addition of Sr positively affected the performance of the materials, suggesting a synergic effect between transition metals and alkaline-earth metal. The role of copper is correlated to the oxidation of NO to NO2, while strontium seems to be mainly involved in the storage of NOx species.

Abstract

This study investigates the activity of transition and alkaline-earth metal-doped catalysts supported on ceria or zirconia for the NOx-assisted oxidation of diesel particulate. A series of Cu- and Fe-impregnated catalysts over CeO2 and ZrO2 supportswere prepared by incipientwetness impregnation and characterized by BET, X-ray diffraction (XRD), and temperature-programmed reduction (TPR) experiments while their catalytic activity was investigated in NOx-assisted reaction by means of temperature programmed oxidation experiments (TPO). Higher activity was achieved by copper modified catalysts; the addition of Sr positively affected the performance of the materials, suggesting a synergic effect between transition metals and alkaline-earth metal. The role of copper is correlated to the oxidation of NO to NO2, while strontium seems to be mainly involved in the storage of NOx species.
