Photocatalytic and Catalytic Oxidation of 2-Propanol over Au/TiO2-CeO2 Catalysts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Photocatalytic and catalytic oxidation of 2-propanol(representative VOC’s compound) were compared over mixed(Au)TiO2-CeO2-based catalysts. The role of support in Aucatalyzed oxidation reaction under photo and dark conditionswas studied. In the photocatalytic oxidation CeO2 had a negativeeffect on the performance towards the alcohol conversion of bothTiO2-CeO2 and Au/TiO2-CeO2 catalysts, being Au/TiO2 the mostactive system. On the contrary mixed TiO2-CeO2 and Au/TiO2-CeO2 samples showed a higher catalytic oxidation efficiency for2-propanol conversion compared to the single oxides.
