Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Different types of composite materials/nanocomposite materials/metal-organic frameworks/carbon-based materials/ hybrid materials/supported materials have been investigated as prospective catalysts in various types of applications, such as different organic transformation reactions, adsorption, degradation, sensor application, gas separation, hydrogen production, CO2 conversion, etc. The boundaries of catalytic materials and reactions research is expanding day by day with emerging energy needs and environmental aspects. Herein, we invite researchers to contribute their research works covering new improvements in the preparation, characterization, and catalytic applications related to energy, environment, and sustainability. The main aim of the Special Issue is to cover a wide range of topics in the field of catalyst and their applications in diverse areas. The article type includes reviews, research articles (full papers), and communications. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Green techniques for nanomaterials processing;
  • Synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials/metal-organic frameworks/carbon-based materials/hybrid materials/supported materials for catalytic reactions;
  • Fabrication of novel nanomaterials/nanocomposite materials for energy and environmental application.

In order to improve the CO catalytic oxidation performance of a Pt/TiO2 catalyst, a series of Pt/TiO2 catalysts were prepared via an impregnation method in this study, and various characterization methods were used to explore the effect of TiO2 calcination pretreatment on the CO catalytic oxidation performance of the catalysts. The results revealed that Pt/TiO2 (700 °C) prepared by TiO2 after calcination pretreatment at 700 °C exhibits a superior CO oxidation activity at low temperatures. After calcination pretreatment, the catalyst exhibited a suitable specific surface area and pore structure, which is beneficial to the diffusion of reactants and reaction products. At the same time, the proportion of adsorbed oxygen on the catalyst surface was increased, which promoted the oxidation of CO. After calcination pretreatment, the adsorption capacity of the catalyst for CO and CO2 decreased, which was beneficial for the simultaneous inhibition of the CO self-poisoning of Pt sites. In addition, the Pt species exhibited a higher degree of dispersion and a smaller particle size, thereby increasing the CO oxidation activity of the Pt/TiO2 (700 °C) catalyst. Full article
