Ceria morphologies as Pd nanoparticles support for heterogeneous catalysis

Abstract:

Ceria is well known for its unique properties in fast oxygen mobility and formation of oxygen vacancies which makes ceria an excellent catalyst support for metal nanoparticles. Promotional effect of ceria has been well established in a number of reactions including three-way catalyst and CO oxidation. These unique properties of ceria are dependent on the surface facets it exposes, where they can be enhanced by the exposure of high energy surfaces such as (100) and (110).
