Thermal stability and SO2 resistance of Pd/Rh-perovskite based three-way catalyst wash-coated on cordierite monoliths

The effect of hydrothermal aging and SO2 poisoning on the three-way catalytic performance of dispersed Pd/Rh-based and Pd/Rh perovskite-based catalysts were studied by using a dynamic activity test system that simulates redox fluctuations of gasoline engine exhaust conditions. Both catalysts were supported on ceria-zirconia-alumina and wash-coated on cordierite monoliths and were characterized by ICP-OES, BET, XRD, TEM-EDX, DRIFTS, and CO chemisorption. Their performance was very close when the catalysts were fresh but, after 3 h of hydrothermal aging at 1000 degrees C, the dispersed Pd/Rh-based catalyst lost its performance especially with respect to C3H8 and NO conversions; however, the Pd/Rh perovskite-based catalyst kept its activity. Parallel to that, CO uptake capacity losses after hydrothermal aging were 85% and 30% for the dispersed metallic catalyst and the perovskite-based catalyst, respectively. Moreover, 20 ppm SO2 exposure decreased CO uptake capacities by 61% and 48% for the two catalysts, respectively.


Development of three way catalytic converter for automotive exhaust gas
Bayram, Bilal; Külah, Görkem; Önal, Işık; Department of Chemical Engineering (2021-7-9)
In this study, a novel perovskite-based three-way catalyst (LaFe0.57Co0.37Pd0.06O3/Ce0.8Zr0.2O2/Al2O3) with high performance, thermal stability and SO2 poisoning resistance was developed. The performance of the developed catalyst was compared to a standard catalyst based on dispersed metal (Pd/Rh/ Ce0.8Zr0.2O2 / Al2O3). Performance evaluations were carried out in a dynamic activity test system that simulates redox fluctuations in the exhaust of gasoline engines. ICP-OES, BET surface area, X-ray diffraction,...
Thermal characterization and model-free kinetics of biodiesel sample
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2015-11-01)
In this study, combustion and pyrolysis behaviours of methanol route biodiesel were investigated using thermal analysis techniques known as simultaneous thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) at different heating rates. Reaction regions, peak temperatures, mass loss and heat flow rates of the biodiesel sample are determined using TG-DTG and DSC data. It was found that as the heating rate of the reactions increased, peak temperatures of the reactions shifted higher temperatures, implyin...
Thermal characterization, combustion and kinetics of different origin crude oils
Gundogar, Asli S.; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2014-05-01)
In this research, the combustion behavior of six Turkish crude oils (light and medium type) was investigated by thermogravimetry/derivative thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) methods under atmospheric air in the absence of rock matrix. Two main reaction intervals were observed on all thermograms known as low temperature oxidation (LTO) and high temperature oxidation (HTO) regions. The resulting curves showed that the mass loss under combustion is accompanied by exothermic ...
Ethylene and acetaldehyde production by selective oxidation of ethanol using mesoporous V-MCM-41 catalysts
Gucbilmez, Yesim; Doğu, Timur; Balci, Suna (2006-05-10)
Vanadium-incorporated MCM-41 type catalytic materials, which were synthesized by a direct hydrothermal synthesis procedure, showed very high activity and high selectivity in the production of ethylene from ethanol in an oxidative process. Ethylene selectivity showed a significant increase with an increase in temperature over 300 degrees C, while relatively high acetaldehyde selectivities were observed at lower temperatures. An ethylene yield value of 0.66 obtained at 400 degrees C with an O-2/ethanol feed r...
Molecular dynamics and quantum chemical studies on diborane
Türker, Burhan Lemi (2003-07-04)
Within the limitations of AMI (restricted Hartree-Fock) type semiempirical quantum chemical calculations, molecular dynamics of B2H6 system at constant temperature conditions was investigated. Adopting the molecular geometry at an elevated temperature certain molecular orbital characteristics of B2H6 were obtained. Also, the vibrational spectrum at the elevated temperature was compared with the corresponding one at T = 0 K.
