Effect of Enhanced Support Acidity on the Sulfate Storage and the Activity of Pt/γ-Al2O3 for NO Oxidation and Propylene Oxidation

  • Louise OlssonEmail author


NO oxidation and propylene oxidation were studied on standard and acidity-enhanced Pt/Al2O3 catalyst. Deactivation by platinum oxide formation was suppressed by the presence of chlorine and sulfates. After a long SO2 exposure, the activity of modified catalysts was higher than the standard catalyst. The aged chlorinated sample showed the best propylene oxidation activity while the sulfated one exhibited the best NO conversion.
