Abstract

Crystalline cobalt oxides were prepared by a precipitation method using three different precipitation agents, IJNH4)2CO3, Na2CO3 and COIJNH2)2. Cobalt oxide nanoparticles corresponding to a Co3O4 loading of 30 wt% were also deposited over high-surface area nanocrystalline ceria by the same precipitation agents. The effect of calcination temperature, 350 or 650 °C, on the morphological and structural properties was evaluated. Characterization by BET, XRD, SEM, TEM, Raman spectroscopy, H2-TPR, XPS and NH3-TPD was performed and the catalytic properties were explored in the methane oxidation reaction. The nature of the precipitation agent strongly influenced the textural properties of Co3O4 and the Co3O4–CeO2 interface. The best control of the particle size was achieved by using COIJNH2)2 that produced small and regular crystallites of Co3O4 homogeneously deposited over the CeO2 surface. Such a Co3O4–CeO2 system precipitated by urea showed enhanced low-temperature reducibility and high surface Co3+ concentration, which were identified as the key factors for promoting methane oxidation at low temperature. Moreover, the synergic effect of cobalt oxide and nanocrystalline ceria produced stable full conversion of methane in the entire range of investigated temperature, up to 700–800 °C, at which Co3O4 deactivation usually occurs.
