CGO-based electrochemical catalysts for low temperature combustion of propene

This study has shown that the phenomenon of electrochemical promotion of catalysis or NEMCA effect can be used to activate a metal catalyst for the propene deep oxidation in the presence of water in the feed and in both stoichiometric and lean-burn conditions. The electrochemical catalysts were based on sputtered Pt films interfaced with gadolinium-doped ceria solid electrolyte. This system allows implementing NEMCA effect at quite low temperatures and electrochemical activation of propene deep oxidation was evidenced at temperatures as low as 190 °C. In addition, a new design of electrochemical catalysts was proposed by depositing a interlayer of strontium-doped lanthanum manganite between the CGO dense support and an ultra-thin coating of Pt. This concept allows to drastically decrease the Pt loading since the electronic conductivity is ensured by the perovskite layer.
