Paper Title:
Application of SEM/TEM to Tests on Pt Distribution in Al2O3 Films Obtained by Oxidising FeCrAl Steel Foil Coated with Pt-Al Nanofilms
  Abstract

Good dispersion of active catalytic elements, their uniform distribution on the carrier’s surface and availability for neutralised combustion gases are key factors that determine the usability of catalyst cartridges for automotive catalytic reactors. By examining the morphology of oxide films, with SEM/STEM method, obtained by oxidation of foil coated with Pt/Al two-layered system (like laminate), where an Al nanofilm is situated between steel foil and a Pt nanofilm, one can observe forked and plate whiskers growing directly of substrate. Oxide films obtained from Pt+Al composite nanofilms were formed differently (where components are intermixed). These films are marked by chaotic, mutually penetrating fine equiaxed solids and whiskers. In case of composite nanofilms the grain system obtained in the course of deposition contributed to good Pt grain refining, and due to that mostly particles from 3 to 9 nm in conventional diameter were formed. Direct contact between Pt particles and Al particles caused the partial occlusion of Pt particles with oxide in the process of Al oxidation to be effected.
