Fourier transform infrared spectra of CO adsorption from 120 K up to room temperature on two gold catalysts supported on different mixed ceria-titania oxides are discussed in comparison with those obtained on Au/ TiO2 and Au/Fe2O3 reference catalysts provided by the World Gold Council.

These absorptions are assigned to CO on Aun + small clusters stabilized at the ceria defects. By reduction in hydrogen, negatively charged Aun - species are produced on the same sample.

Abstract

Fourier transform infrared spectra of CO adsorption from 120 K up to room temperature on two gold catalysts supported on different mixed ceria-titania oxides are discussed in comparison with those obtained on Au/ TiO2 and Au/Fe2O3 reference catalysts provided by the World Gold Council. The spectra of adsorbed CO, run on the different samples before preliminary treatment, are shown and compared with those of the untreated catalysts and of the samples reduced either in CO or in hydrogen. Big differences have been found between the ceria-titania supported samples and the reference ones: unusual absorption bands, irreversible to outgassing, have been detected after CO interaction on the untreated and oxidized ceria containing samples. These absorptions are assigned to CO on Aun + small clusters stabilized at the ceria defects. By reduction in hydrogen, negatively charged Aun - species are produced on the same sample. Oxidized small particles are present on the reference catalysts, but only on the untreated samples; after treatment, only metallic step sites are evident.
