Automotive exhaust emission is a major cause of air pollution. Three-way catalyst (TWC) which can eliminate CO, HC (hydrocarbons), and NO(x) simultaneously has been used to control exhaust emissions. Ceria-zirconia is a key component in TWC and most researchers pay attention to Ceria-Zirconia (Ce-rich) solid solution. The research presented in this paper is(More)
Pd/CeO2-ZrO2-Pr2O3 (CZP) catalysts with different Ce/Zr molar ratios were synthesized and systematically investigated by XRD, N2 adsorption-desorption, XPS, H2-TPR, OSC and in situ DRIFTS techniques. The results of XPS, in situ DRIFTS, etc., show that the number of oxygen vacancies increases with the increasing Zr content and thus leads to the enhanced(More)
Ce(0.67)Zr(0.33)O(2) doped with iron oxide was prepared and the corresponding Pd-only three-way catalysts were examined and characterized. Pd/CZFe(1%) catalyst exhibits the best catalytic performance for CO, HC, NO and NO(2) elimination and the widest operation window. The doping of iron oxide with 1% loading suggests the formation of more homogeneous(More)
The influence of alkaline earth metal (M=Mg, Ca, Sr and Ba) promoter on the structural/textural properties of Ce0.67Zr0.33O2 (designated as CZ) and the catalytic behavior of its supported Pd-only three-way catalyst (Pd/CZM) have been investigated. The results show that the modification with alkaline earth metal obviously improves the catalytic activity for(More)
Pd/CeO2-ZrO2-Nd2O3 (CZN) catalysts with different CeO2/ZrO2 molar ratios were synthesized and have been characterized by multiple techniques, e.g. XRD in combination with Rietveld refinement, UV-Raman, XPS and in situ DRIFTS. The XRD pattern of CZN with CeO2/ZrO2 molar ratios ≥1/2 can be indexed satisfactorily to the fluorite structure with a space group(More)
Four different synthetic routes (co-precipitation, oxidation-precipitation, citric acid sol-gel and reversed microemulsion) are adopted to prepare barium modified Pd/CeO2-ZrO2 catalysts and their catalytic activity towards CO, HC and NOx conversions is studied. The surface and bulk properties of these catalysts are characterized via XRD, N2 adsorption, XPS,(More)
A series of ceria-zirconia-neodymia mixed oxides with different contents of neodymia and the supported Pd-only three-way catalysts before and after aging have been prepared and characterized. The influence of Nd doping on the structural/textural properties of ceria-zirconia (CZ) and the effect on the three-way catalytic performance are also investigated.(More)
CeO(2) modified ultrastable Y zeolite (CeO(2)-USY) catalysts were prepared and were used as the catalysts for the decomposition of 1,2-dichloroethane (DCE). The catalytic behavior of these catalysts was evaluated by micro-reaction and temperature-programmed surface reaction (TPSR) technique. The results reveal that CeO(2)-USY catalysts exhibit good(More)
