Title
The stability of Co3O4, Fe2O3, Au/Co3O4 and Au/Fe2O3 catalysts in the catalytic combustion of lean methane mixtures in the presence of water
Abstract

•Excellent hydrothermal stability was observed over Co3O4 and Au/Co3O4 catalysts.•The oxidation state of Co3O4 does not irreversibly change after stability tests.•Catalyst characterization suggests hydroxyls are responsible for deactivation.

Nano-sized Co3O4, Fe2O3, Au/Co3O4 and Au/Fe2O3 catalysts were prepared and evaluated for catalytic combustion of lean methane-air mixtures. Characteristics and catalytic activities under dry and wet feed conditions were investigated at gas hourly space velocities up to 100 000 h−1 mimicking the typical flow and conversion requirements of a catalytic system designed to treat a ventilation air methane stream. In order to gain a better understanding of the interaction between H2O and the catalyst surface, temperature-programmed desorption of water over fresh and used samples were studied, and supported by other catalyst characterization techniques such as N2-adsorption desorption, XRD, TEM, SEM and XPS analyses. The activity measurements of the catalysts studied identify Co3O4 as the most active material. Co-precipitating gold particles with cobalt oxide or iron oxide do not enhance the activity of the catalyst, which is most likely due to blocking the active site of support by the gold particle. The presence of strong hydroxyl bonds on the catalyst surface is substantiated by TPD and XPS analyses, and is suggested to be responsible for the rapid deactivation of Fe2O3 and Au/Fe2O3 catalysts.
