Harold , Dan Luss Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, University of Houston, Houston 77204-4004, United States GR APHICAL A BSTRACT ARTICLE I NFO ABSTRACT Keywords: A diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) comprising an alumina-based washcoat of Platinum (Pt) and Palladium (Pd) is Hydrocarbon trap used to catalyze the oxidation of a diesel exhaust containing hydrocarbons (HCs) with suﬃciently high con- Beta-zeolite version. A large-pore zeolite such as Beta (BEA) is added to the DOC to trap diesel exhaust hydrocarbons during Diesel oxidation catalyst the cold start. There is a need to gain insight on how BEA aﬀects the performance of the HC light-oﬀ and of the Oscillations transient HC oxidation. We conducted steady-state and transient trapping experiments involving the n-dodecane Dodecane in order to enable improved trap design and operating strategy. Simultaneous spatio-temporal measurements of Oxidation concentration and temperature, respectively by spatially-resolved mass spectrometry and coherent optical fre- Platinum quency domain reﬂectometer, provide detailed insight into the reactor dynamics. Steady-state experiments re- veal unexpected periodic oscillations
