Thermally Stable Pt/Rh Catalysts 972909

The increasing severity in emission standards around the world has been accompanied by the development of more active, durable catalysts. With a view to investigating the effects of high thermal aging on the catalyst performance and structure, the relationships of washcoat composition, washcoat structure, and PGM location with respect to catalyst activity were clarified using a model gas test, as well as physical and chemical characterization methods. The influence of newly developed washcoat components and PGM location on catalyst performance are also demonstrated by engine bench tests. The results obtained in this study indicate the newly developed Pt/Rh catalyst techologies are appropriate for future applications in which the catalyst will be exposed to extremely high temperature and flowrates.
