Abstract

Monometallic palladium catalysts were synthesized using different titanium supports and tested for the reduction of nitrates from aqueous solutions using hydrogen as a reductant. The Pd/TiO2 catalysts were characterized by electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), low-temperature Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy of adsorbed CO, and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The catalysts studied exhibited a high activity for nitrate removal with a lower tendency for nitrite formation than the conventional bimetallic Pd catalysts. Although ammonium formation was greater than desired, the use of a monometallic catalyst for this two-step reduction process is significant and suggests that a single site may be responsible for both reduction stages. The titanium support (particularly the Ti3+ centers generated during prereduction in the presence of Pd) appear to play an important role in the nitrate degradation process. The potential role of Pd beta-hydride in generating these Ti3+ centers is discussed. (c) 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
