Title
Total CO oxidation over Fe-containing Au/HMS catalysts: Effects of gold loading and catalyst pretreatment
Abstract

In this work we report the effects of catalyst pretreatment (oxidation versus reduction) and gold loading on the catalytic response of Au/HMS–Fe catalysts for the CO oxidation reaction. Hexagonal mesoporous silica (HMS) substrates modified with Fe3+ ions (Si/Fe molar ratio of 40) were prepared via a neutral S0I0 templating route employing one-pot synthesis, whereas the supported gold catalysts with different Au concentrations were prepared by the deposition–precipitation method. The activity was measured by temperature-programmed reaction tests in the 20–400 °C range, and the catalysts were characterized by different techniques (SBET, XRD, H2-TPR, DRS UV–vis, XPS and DRIFTS). It was found that catalytic activity was a function of Au-loading being the most active the catalyst with the highest Au loading (5.1 wt%). The light-off curves showed a positive effect on the catalytic activity by a reduction treatment prior to performing the catalytic reaction. From DRIFTS study of co-adsorption of CO and O2, it was concluded that the cationic gold species were the active phase in CO oxidation reaction. From the discussion of activity and characterization results it is proposed a reaction path where CO oxidation reaction takes place at the interface between gold cationic species and the iron sites.
