WK17123
Test Method for Carbon Monoxide Chemisorption on Supported Platinum on Alumina Catalysts Using Dynamic Flow Method

 

Scope

This technique determines the active surface area of supported metal catalysts and can be used for fuel cell research.

 

Dynamic chemisorption is a commonly used technique for determining the active surface area of supported metal catalysts. The proposed method provides standard methodology for performing the preparation and chemisorption of carbon monoxide on supported platinum on alumina catalysts.

 

No standard exists for this technique. Active surface area determinations are widely used in the petroleum and chemical industries. Fuel cell research also utilizes similar materials and requires dispersion and active surface area determinations.

 

Status

Draft under development.
