Title: High performance diesel oxidation catalysts using ultra-low Pt loading on titania nanowire array integrated cordierite honeycombs

High performance of an ultra-low Pt loading diesel oxidation catalyst can be achieved by using a combination of novel nano-array structured support, precise control of ultrafine active Pt particles, and an addition of H 2 as a promoter into the exhausts. Highly stable mesoporous rutile TiO 2 nano-array was uniformly grown on three-dimensional (3-D) cordierite honeycomb monoliths using a solvothermal synthesis. Atomic layer deposition was employed for precise dispersion of ultrafine Pt particles (0.95 ± 0.24 nm) on TiO 2 nano-array with a Pt loading of 1.1 g/ft 3. Despite low Pt loading, the Pt/TiO 2 nano-array catalyst shows impressive low-temperature oxidation reactivity, with the conversion of CO and total hydrocarbon (THC) reaching 50% at 224 and 285 °C, respectively, in the clean diesel combustion (CDC) simulated exhaust conditions. The excellent activity is attributed to the unique nano-array structure that promotes gas-solid interaction and ultra-small Pt particle dispersion that increase surface Pt atoms. We also demonstrate that addition of more H 2 into the exhaust can lower light-off temperature for CO and THC by up to ~60 °C and ~30 °C, respectively.
