TL;DR: In this article, the kinetics and mechanism of CO oxidation on single and mixed oxides are examined, alongside the catalyst structures, in a review of the literature on carbon monoxide over oxide catalysts.
Abstract: Oxidation into CO2 is a major solution to CO abatement in air depollution treatments. The development of catalytic converters led to an extraordinary high number of publications on metal catalysts during the last fifty years. Due to the increasing price of noble metals and to remarkable progresses in oxide syntheses, catalytic oxidation of carbon monoxide over oxide catalysts has recently gained in interest, even if some oxides are known to present remarkable activity since the beginning of the 20th century. In this Review, the kinetics and mechanism of CO oxidation on single and mixed oxides are examined, alongside the catalyst structures

TL;DR: In this paper, a temperature-programmed isotopic exchange of 18O2 with 16O of several oxides was carried out in the 200−900 °C temperature range.
Abstract: Temperature-programmed isotopic exchange of 18O2 with 16O of several oxides was carried out in the 200−900 °C temperature range. The oxides can be ranked according to their maximal rates of exchange obtained at the following temperatures: CeO2, 410 °C ≫ CeO2-Al2O3, 480 °C ≈ MgO, 490 °C > ZrO2, 530 °C ≫ γ-Al2O3, 620 °C ≫ SiO2, 850 °C. Except on CeO2 and on CeO2-Al2O3 a simple exchange yielding initially 18O16O can be observed. With ceria containing oxides, the reaction occurs in part via a multiple exchange mechanism yielding initially 16O2 which is indicative of the presence of binuclear species (O2, O2-, or O22-) at the ceria surface. Chlorine-free rhodium catalysts supported on these oxides were prepared with metal dispersions between 32 and 89%. The presence of rhodium accelerates considerably the oxygen exchange with the support: the maximal rates of the exchange can be observed at much lower temperatures, by about 200−300 °C with respect to the bare oxides. This is attributed to a spillover of oxyg...

TL;DR: In this paper, a new strategy for maximizing the hydrogen production and minimizing the CO formation is proposed, which is based on the unexpected observation that any highly selective catalytic formulation should be free of any promoter in the water gas shift reaction (WGSR) which tends to equilibrate the SRR gas towards higher CO concentrations.

TL;DR: This Review demonstrates that the exceptional surface (and sometimes bulk) properties of ceria make cerium-based catalysts very effective for a broad range of organic reactions.
Abstract: Ceria has been the subject of thorough investigations, mainly because of its use as an active component of catalytic converters for the treatment of exhaust gases. However, ceria-based catalysts have also been developed for different applications in organic chemistry. The redox and acid-base properties of ceria, either alone or in the presence of transition metals, are important parameters that allow to activate complex organic molecules and to selectively orient their transformation. Pure ceria is used in several organic reactions, such as the dehydration of alcohols, the alkylation of aromatic compounds, ketone formation, and aldolization, and in redox reactions. Ceria-supported metal catalysts allow the hydrogenation of many unsaturated compounds. They can also be used for coupling or ring-opening reactions. Cerium atoms can be added as dopants to catalytic system or impregnated onto zeolites and mesoporous catalyst materials to improve their performances. This Review demonstrates that the exceptional surface (and sometimes bulk) properties of ceria make cerium-based catalysts very effective for a broad range of organic reactions.

TL;DR: A survey of the use of cerium oxide and CeO2-containing materials as oxidation and reduction catalysts is presented in this paper, with a special focus on catalytic interaction with small molecules such as hydrogen, carbon monoxide, oxygen, and nitric oxide.
Abstract: Over the past several years, cerium oxide and CeO2-containing materials have come under intense scrutiny as catalysts and as structural and electronic promoters of heterogeneous catalytic reactions. Recent developments regarding the characterization of ceria and CeO2-containing catalysts are critically reviewed with a special focus towards catalyst interaction with small molecules such as hydrogen, carbon monoxide, oxygen, and nitric oxide. Relevant catalytic and technological applications such as the use of ceria in automotive exhaust emission control and in the formulation of SO x reduction catalysts is described. A survey of the use of CeO2-containing materials as oxidation and reduction catalysts is also presented.

TL;DR: This review has a wide view on all those aspects related to ceria which promise to produce an important impact on the authors' life, encompassing fundamental knowledge of CeO2 and its properties, characterization toolbox, emerging features, theoretical studies, and all the catalytic applications, organized by their degree of establishment on the market.
Abstract: Cerium dioxide (CeO2, ceria) is becoming an ubiquitous constituent in catalytic systems for a variety of applications. 2016 sees the 40th anniversary since ceria was first employed by Ford Motor Company as an oxygen storage component in car converters, to become in the years since its inception an irreplaceable component in three-way catalysts (TWCs). Apart from this well-established use, ceria is looming as a catalyst component for a wide range of catalytic applications. For some of these, such as fuel cells, CeO2-based materials have almost reached the market stage, while for some other catalytic reactions, such as reforming processes, photocatalysis, water-gas shift reaction, thermochemical water splitting, and organic reactions, ceria is emerging as a unique material, holding great promise for future market breakthroughs. While much knowledge about the fundamental characteristics of CeO2-based materials has already been acquired, new characterization techniques and powerful theoretical methods are dee...
