In this comprehensive review, the main aspects of using Au/CeO2 catalysts in oxidation reactions are considered. The influence of the preparation methods and synthetic parameters, as well as the characteristics of the ceria support (presence of doping cations, oxygen vacancies concentration, surface area, redox properties, etc.) in the dispersion and chemical state of gold are revised. The proposed review provides a detailed analysis of the literature data concerning the state of the art and the applications of gold–ceria systems in oxidation reactions. View Full-Text
Keywords: gold–ceria catalysts; oxidation reactions; preferential oxidation reactions (PROX); water gas shift (WGS) gold–ceria catalysts; oxidation reactions; preferential oxidation reactions (PROX); water gas shift (WGS)
