Diesel Emissions Abatement Via Wall-Flow Traps Based on La
Nano-structured bulk Li-substituted La-Cr perovskites were prepared, characterized, tested in comparison with the reference LaCrO3. The progressive increase in the Li content of the catalysts induces an increase in the catalytic activity owing to the enhancement of the amount of weakly chemisorbed oxygen O-species, key players in the soot oxidation mechanism. However, beyond 20% Cr substitution with Li, part of this latter metal was segregated as LiCrO2. The best single-phase catalyst (La0.8Cr0.8Li0.2O3) was already active well below 350°C. Catalytic traps were prepared by in situ combustion synthesis within cordierite and SiC wall-flow filters on the basis of the above catalysts and tested on real diesel exhaust gases in an engine bench, fully confirming the encouraging results obtained on powder catalysts.
