A mechanistic study of low temperature CO oxidation over cobalt oxide
Journal article, 2001

The CO oxidation over Co3O4 and Co3O4/Al2O3 has been investigated using flow reactor and in situ FTIR studies. Cobalt oxide shows very high activity even at room temperature. However, a gradual deactivation takes place during reaction. The deactivated catalyst shows the presence of two different carbonate species and one graphite-like species. A possible mechanism for the deactivation is discussed.
