Layered double hydroxide (LDH) derived catalysts for simultaneous catalytic removal of soot and NOx
Nitrogen oxides (NOx) and soot which come from vehicle engine exhausts cause serious environmental pollution and human health problems. Recently, the catalytic purification technology, particularly the simultaneous catalytic removal of soot and NOx, has received more and more attention. For this technology, the key is to develop highly efficient and robust catalysts. Due to the unique chemical and structural properties of layered double hydroxides (LDHs), LDH-derived catalysts have shown great potential, and much effort has been devoted to this type of catalyst. In this manuscript, we reviewed the latest progress in the LDH derived catalysts by classifying the LDH precursors according to the number of metals into binary, ternary, and quaternary, and discussed their advantages and disadvantages in detail. We hope that this review paper could provide a clearer picture of this topic and theoretical support for its better development.
