Title: Origin of Active Oxygen in a Ternary CuO x /Co 3O 4–CeO 2 Catalyst for CO Oxidation

In this paper, we have studied CO oxidation over a ternary CuO x/Co 3O 4-CeO 2 catalyst and employed the techniques of N 2 adsorption/desporption, XRD, TPR, TEM, in situ DRIFTS and QMS (Quadrupole mass spectrometer) to explore the origin of active oxygen. DRIFTS-QMS results with labeled 18O2 indicate that the origin of active oxygens in CuO x/Co 3O 4-CeO 2 obeys a model, called as queue mechanism. Namely gas-phase molecular oxygens are dissociated to atomic oxygens and then incorporate in oxygen vacancies located at the interface of Co 3O 4-CeO 2 to form active crystalline oxygens, and these active oxygens diffuse to the CO-Cu + sites thanks to the oxygen vacancy concentration magnitude and react with the activated CO to form CO 2. This process, obeying a queue rule, provides active oxygens to form CO 2 from gas-phase O 2 via oxygen vacancies and crystalline oxygen at the interface of Co 3O 4-CeO 2.
