Paper Title:
Nano-Sized Au/CeO2 Catalysts for Total and Selective CO Oxidation
  Abstract

Au/CeO2 catalysts prepared by a deposition-precipitation and a co-precipitation method were applied to CO oxidation in the absence and presence of hydrogen. The transmission electron microscope (TEM), the temperature programmed reduction (TPR), and the X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) were conducted to probe structural and electronic properties of gold. Au2O3 was determined to be mainly present when Au/CeO2 was prepared by a deposition-precipitation method. However, the metallic gold was observed in a co-precipitated Au/CeO2 catalyst. Au/CeO2 containing oxidized gold species, prepared by a deposition-precipitation method, showed the decreasing CO conversion with a reaction time, which accompanied the reduction of gold from Au(+3) to Au(0). However, co-precipitated Au/CeO2 showed the stable CO conversion. The effect of pretreatment condition on CO oxidation was also examined. These results support that Au/CeO2 catalyst containing oxidized gold species was superior to Au/CeO2 catalyst containing the metallic gold for CO oxidation. This Au/CeO2 catalyst was also active for the selective CO oxidation in the presence of hydrogen.
