Conventional Pt/Al2O3 catalysts prepared by wet-impregnation are composed of Pt nanoparticles exposing convex and facetted surfaces deposited on high-surface area ?-Al2O3 supports. A hexagonal phase mesoporous Pt material (denoted H1-Pt) prepared by chemical reduction in the aqueous domains of a lyotropic liquid crystalline template exposes however mainly a concave surface with expected different catalytic properties. A series of Pt/Al2O3 catalysts were prepared using H1-Pt, Pt-black or wet-impregnated Pt, and the samples were characterized by SEM-EDX and TEM, and finally evaluated for CO oxidation. The H1-Pt/Al2O3 catalyst showed an ignition profile for CO oxidation at lower temperatures and thus appeared less sensitive to CO poisoning than the two other types of samples. This difference may be related to the differences in surface curvature.
