CuO-CeO2 mixed oxide catalysts for the selective oxidation of carbon monoxide in excess hydrogen
A series of mixed oxide CuO-CeO2 catalysts were prepared by coprecipitation and tested for the selective oxidation of carbon monoxide in the presence of excess hydrogen. These catalysts were found to be very active and exceptionally selective for this reaction and exhibited a good resistance towards CO2 and H2O. The catalytic performance of these non-noble metal containing catalysts is compared with that of other selective CO oxidation catalysts reported in literature.
