Abstract

Normal temperature catalytic ozonation (NTCO) is a promising yet challenging method for the removal of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) because of limited activity of the catalysts at ambient temperature. Here, we report a series of Pt/FeOx catalysts prepared by the co-precipitation method for NTCO of gaseous methanol. All samples were found to be active and among them, the Pt/FeOx-400 (calcined at 400 °C) catalyst with a Pt cluster loading of 0.2% exhibited the highest activity, able to completely convert methanol into CO2 and H2O at 30 °C. Extensive experimental research suggested that the superior catalytic activity could be attributed to the highly dispersed Pt clusters and an appropria..
