Goethite- and hematite-supported highly dispersed gold catalysts for carbon monoxide oxidation were synthesized by gold precursor adsorption onto the support materials in self-generated alkaline solutions. The support materials were prepared by reacting iron nitrate with excess sodium hydroxide. The residual minor alkali incorporated into the support could provide suitable alkaline conditions at approximately pH 8 for the hydrolysis of tetrachloroaurate anions and the subsequent adsorption process. Gold species underwent autoreduction to achieve activation during the synthesis. An increase in pH or temperature to 80 °C decreased the gold loading of the catalysts. The optimal catalysts could achieve complete oxidation of carbon monoxide at −20 °C. View Full-Text
