Effect of the nature of rhodium catalyst supports on initiation of H2production duringn-butane oxidative reforming at room temperature

Publication year: 2012 Source: Journal of Catalysis, Available online 21 January 2012 Katsutoshi Nagaoka, Katsutoshi Sato, Yusaku Takita Three rhodium catalysts supported on rare earth oxides with redox properties, Rh/CeO2, Rh/Pr6O11, and Rh/Tb4O7, were tested for their ability to trigger oxidative reforming ofn-butane at room temperature. Only Rh/CeO2triggered the oxidative reforming, owing to the heat generated by the spontaneous oxidation of the CeO2−xspecies produced by prior reduction of the supported catalyst with H2.
