Controllable synthesis of supported platinum catalysts: acidic support effect and soot oxidation catalysis

Abstract

Platinum nanoparticles were synthesized by a classic polyol process in ethylene glycol. The Pt nanoparticles were loaded on the H-ZSM5 and -Al2O3 supports by wet impregnation. The as-obtained solid was thermally treated in a two-step procedure to remove the organic residues. Due to the larger particle size than the micropore size of H-ZSM5, the impregnated Pt particles were dispersed on the external surface of the zeolite support. With similar Pt particle size distribution and Pt loading, the Pt/H-ZSM5 and Pt/-Al2O3 catalysts were evaluated for the oxidation of NO and soot. Despite a lower activity for NO oxidation to NO2, the Pt/H-ZSM5 exhibited a much higher activity for soot oxidation in the presence of NO + O2. This abnormal NOx-assisted soot oxidation behaviour of Pt/H-ZSM5 was explained by the promoting effect of acid sites on the zeolite.
