Liquefied petroleum gas(LPG) is widely employed to power vehicles and industrial combustors, in which noble-metal catalysts are usually applied to catalytic combustion of propane, the major component of LPG. However, noble metals are expensive and prone to losing activity. We found the low-cost copper-based mixed oxide catalysts from modified clays are more active than the Pt-based catalyst and can be alternative materials for LPG combustors. Our findings unearthed the possibility using transition-metal to replace noble metal catalysts with better performance but lower investments. Our methodology and materials also inspire development materials for catalytic removal of volatile organic compounds.

Abstract

Liquefied petroleum gas(LPG) is widely employed to power vehicles and industrial combustors, in which noble-metal catalysts are usually applied to catalytic combustion of propane, the major component of LPG. However, noble metals are expensive and prone to losing activity. We found the low-cost copper-based mixed oxide catalysts from modified clays are more active than the Pt-based catalyst and can be alternative materials for LPG combustors. Our findings unearthed the possibility using transition-metal to replace noble metal catalysts with better performance but lower investments. Our methodology and materials also inspire development materials for catalytic removal of volatile organic compounds.
