Abstract: This article reviews work done at authors’ laboratories about catalysts based on combinations between copper and ceria for preferential oxidation of CO in H2-rich streams (CO-PROX). The main focus of this review is the characterization of active sites for the process on the basis of spectroscopic analysis of the systems under reaction conditions (operando techniques). On such a basis, it is exposed the state of the art in this field in connection with results obtained in other laboratories.
Keywords: copper-ceria catalysts; CO preferential oxidation (CO-PROX); diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy (DRIFTS); X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy (XANES); Raman; X-ray diffraction (XRD); X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS)
