Characterization and CO Oxidation Activity of Cu/Cr/Al2O3 Catalysts

  author={Paul Worn Park and Jeffrey Scott Ledford},
X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) have been used to characterize a series of Cu/Cr/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} catalysts prepared by stepwise incipient wetness impregnation of first chromium followed by copper (designated CuCry). The copper loading was held constant at 8 wt% CuO, and chromium loadings were varied from 0 to 20 wt% Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3}. The information obtained from surface and bulk characterization has been correlated with the CO oxidation activity of the… CONTINUE READING
