dc.description.abstractThe main objective of this study is to design novel DeNOx catalyst to widen the operational temperature range of exhaust emission control systems. For this purpose, single and multi NOx-storage domains (e.g. K2O, BaO) were loaded on an Al2O3/ZrO2/TiO2 (AZT) ternary mixed oxide support with various compositions and different catalytic systems were synthesized by utilizing sol-gel and wetness impregnation methods. These materials were characterized by means of XRD, N2 sorption, in-situ FTIR and TPD measurements in comparison to the Pt/20Ba/Al benchmark catalyst. K2O and BaO co-loading on AZT sample reveals better platinum dispersion than that of the single storage domain materials. Particularly, Pt/5.4K-8Ba/AZT system revealed promising NOx storage capacity (NSC) and high sulfur removal performance. NOx/SOx adsorption geometries and stabilities of the generated adsorbates were analyzed using in-situ FTIR and TPD. Although the Pt/20Ba/AZT and Pt/10K/AZT catalysts revealed high NSC, they showed poor sulfur regeneration characteristics. In conclusion, it was demonstrated that K2O and BaO co-impregnated samples can be utilized to design new catalytic architectures to modify the operational temperature window of exhaust emission control catalysts.en_US
