Abstract

The objective of this program is to develop a heterogeneous catalyst for the destruction of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at low concentrations and near-ambient temperatures, under oxygen-rich conditions. The catalyst will be Pt and/or Pd supported on a multi-component metal oxide based on the Ce1-xZrXO2 defect-fluorite structure, where 0
