Co3O4/HZSM-5 catalysts for methane combustion: The effect of preparation methodologies
A series of Co3O4/HZSM-5 catalysts with different Co3O4 loadings were prepared by incipient wetness impregnation followed by thermal calcination or dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) plasma decomposition. Their catalytic performances for the complete combustion of methane were evaluated from 300 to 700°C. The plasma decomposed samples exhibit much higher catalytic activity than the calcined ones. Among all the samples tested, the plasma decomposed catalyst with 20wt.% loading of Co3O4 possesses the highest catalytic activity with T10 (10% CH4 conversion) at 300°C and T100 (complete conversion) at 550°C. The excellent catalytic activity of the DBD plasma decomposed samples would attribute to well-dispersed Co3O4, enhanced low-temperature reducibility, high content of lattice oxygen and adsorbed oxygen species, as well as the low formation tendency of the intermediate of Co-formate.
