Room temperature carbon monoxide oxidation based on two-dimensional gold-loaded mesoporous iron oxide nanoflakes
In this work, we fabricate a highly effective catalyst for carbon monoxide oxidation based on gold-loaded mesoporous maghemite nanoflakes which exhibit nearly 100% CO conversion and a very high specific activity of 8.41 molCOgAu-1h-1at room temperature. Such excellent catalytic activity is promoted by the synergistic cooperation of their high surface area, large pore volume, and mesoporous structure.
