Nanocrystalline ceria–praseodymia and ceria–zirconia solid solutions for soot oxidation

Nanocrystalline ceria–praseodymia and ceria–zirconia solid solutions for soot oxidation The relative effects of Zr4+ and Pr3+/4+ dopants on the structure, redox properties, and catalytic performance of nanosized ceria was studied. The investigated ceria–zirconia and ceria–praseodymia (CP) solid solutions were prepared by a modified coprecipitation method, characterized by a variety of techniques, and evaluated for soot oxidation.

Besides having low specific surface area, CP is more active in soot oxidation. This better activity has been attributed to the presence of more surface and bulk oxygen vacancies, which promote the adsorption of gas-phase oxygen and the formation and mobility of large numbers of active oxygen species. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals

Abstract

The relative effects of Zr4+ and Pr3+/4+ dopants on the structure, redox properties, and catalytic performance of nanosized ceria was studied. The investigated ceria–zirconia and ceria–praseodymia (CP) solid solutions were prepared by a modified coprecipitation method, characterized by a variety of techniques, and evaluated for soot oxidation. The characterization results indicate that CP has more surface and bulk oxygen vacancies, redox sites, and lattice oxygen mobility, and better thermal stability. Besides having low specific surface area, CP is more active in soot oxidation. This better activity has been attributed to the presence of more surface and bulk oxygen vacancies, which promote the adsorption of gas-phase oxygen and the formation and mobility of large numbers of active oxygen species.
