|dc.description.abstract||In this study, catalytic activity and thermal stability of the arc plasma deposited (APD) Pt nano-particles on Al2O3 and CeO2–Al2O3 were compared with that of the conventionally prepared Pt/Al2O3. All the catalysts were characterized by BET-surface area, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, CO-pulse chemisorption, H2-temperarture programmed reduction and X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy. Through the quantum chemical calculations of different metal oxide support, CeO2 was identified as a suitable anchoring material with high energy level between the Pt species (Pt0 and PtO x ) on ceria. Subsequently, the results of XPS and XANES revealed the presence of abundant Pt0 metal species in APD catalysts. The addition of ceria to Al2O3 support enhanced the dispersion of Pt nano-particles. The H2-TPR of Pt/CeO2–Al2O3 (APD) catalyst showed high-temperature reduction peaks corresponding to the interaction of Pt with ceria on alumina by Pt–O–Ce. Consequently, the Pt nano-particles deposited on CeO2–Al2O3 by APD attained strong thermal resistance at high temperatures. In addition, superior catalytic activities for CO and C3H6 oxidation and NO x reduction were obtained for the Pt/CeO2– Al2O3 (APD) catalyst.||-|
