A LEIS and in situ XAS study of supported Pd-Pt catalysts for CH4 oxidation
Conference contribution, 2016

It is of vital importance to remove methane (CH4) from the exhausts of natural gas and biogas fueled engines as CH4 is a strong greenhouse gas. So far Pd-based catalysts have been used almost exclusively but their high sensitivity to sulfur and water pushes research to explore other materials. Among these are Pd-Pt catalysts [1-4], which exhibit a slight increase in CH4 oxidation activity with time and higher long-term stability than the Pd-only counterpart [5-7]. Still, however, little is known about the oxidation-reduction behaviour of the Pd-Pt nanoclusters and how this impacts the catalytic activity. This study aims at increase the understanding of the catalytic activity of Al2O3-supported Pd-Pt nanoclusters for low-temperature CH4 oxidation under transient, although generally lean, conditions.
