Ceria-based nanoflake arrays integrated on 3D cordierite honeycombs for efficient low-temperature diesel oxidation catalyst
A new, surfactant-free hydrothermal method has been developed for the growth of CeO2-based nanoflake arrays onto three-dimensional-channeled cordierite honeycomb substrates. Herein, a leaching-crystallization mechanism was proposed where the hydrothermal reaction, only involving cerium nitrate and water, leached the cordierite surface slightly and induced the formation of CeO2 nanoparticles subsequently. Further continued reaction reincorporated Al and Si atoms leached from cordierite into CeO2, finally recrystallizing Ce-Al-Si composite nanoflake structures. By using atomic layer deposition process, well-dispersed, size-controlled Pt nanoparticles were uniformly decorated on the CeO2-based nanoflakes to form the Pt/ CeO2 nano-array-based monolithic catalyst. Despite 5-50 times reduction in the active material usage compared with the traditional wash-coated catalyst, the Pt/CeO2 nano-array monolithic catalyst exhibited good catalytic oxidation activities over various individual gases, such as propylene, propane, CO, and NO oxidation, with 90% conversion efficiencies at temperatures below 200 degrees C. Under the simulated exhaust condition of low-temperature diesel combustion (LTC-D) developed by US DRIVE, the monolithic catalyst with low Pt loading Cl g/1) exhibits 90% conversion of catalytic oxidation over CO and hydrocarbonsat temperatures as low as-180 degrees C, much superior to the performance of traditional washcoated catalysts.
