Abstract [en]

In this study, an experimental investigation concerning exhaust gas catalysts for heavy-duty diesel engines fuelled by natural gas or biogas is presented. Miniature monoliths, 2.5 wt% Pd/Al2O3, have been prepared, characterised and tested. Various methods have been used in order to obtain different palladium particle sizes, including incipient wetness and microemulsion technique. Crystallite sizes between 2 and 40 nm were obtained. We observed that the metal particle size influences the activity for methane oxidation. Moreover, the homogeneity of the active material was found to affect the reaction rate.
