Nanofaceted PdO sites in PdCe surface superstructures: enhanced activity in catalytic combustion of methane
Rights accessRestricted access - publisher's policy
An open superstructure: A Pd/CeO2 catalyst prepared by solution combustion synthesis is three to five times more active for CH4 combustion than the best conventional palladium-based systems. The catalyst contains an ordered, stable Pd-O-Ce surface superstructure (see picture; cyan arrow is a square-planar Pd site, red arrow is an undercoordinated O atom) and is an example of ultra-highly dispersed, stable PdO within an oxide carrier.
