Research Article


The Pd catalyst supported on cryptomelane-type manganese oxide octahedral molecular sieve (OMS-2) were prepared. The effect of Pd loading on the catalytic oxidation of carbon monoxide, toluene, and ethyl acetate over xPd/OMS-2 has been investigated. The results show that the Pd loading plays an important role on the physicochemical properties of the xPd/OMS-2 catalysts which outperform the Pd-free counterpart with the 0.5Pd/OMS-2 catalyst being the best. The temperature for 50% conversion was 25, 240 and 160 °C, and the temperature for 90% conversion was 55, 285 and 200 °C for oxidation of CO, toluene, and ethyl acetate, respectively. The lowtemperature reducibility and high oxygen mobility of xPd/OMS-2 are the factors contributable to the excellent catalytic performance of 0.5Pd/OMS-2.
