Material Brief: BET Surface Area and Chemisorption of a Pd/Rh Catalyst (Catalytic Converter) - autosorb iQ-C

A Pd/Rh heterogeneous catalyst used in catalytic converters was analyzed using N2 and CO on the autosorb iQ-C. The BET surface area, active metal area and dispersion were calculated from the data.

Palladium is often alloyed, or mixed, with other metals to improve its efficiency in catalytic conversions. Important properties for these catalysts include the BET surface area, active metal area, and dispersion. The autosorb iQ-C was used to analyze a Pd/Rh catalyst on an alumina support.
