Abstract: It was found that Si-MCM-41 mesoporous molecular sieves as a support of noble metal Pt could be used for the selective catalytic reduction of NO by hydrogen (H2-SCR) under lean-burn conditions. Pt/Si-MCM-41, together with Pt/Si-ZSM-5 and Pt/SiO2, was characterized by X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD), nitrogen adsorption/desorption, hydrogen adsorption, and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The results indicated that Pt/Si-MCM-41 had the best H2-SCR activity in comparison with Pt/Si-ZSM-5 and Pt/SiO2 catalysts and that the maximum conversion of NO was up to 60.1%at 100 ℃ and a gas hourly space velocity (GHSV) of 80000 h-1 under lean-burn conditions. Characterization showed that the large surface area and pore volume of MCM-41 favored the dispersion of Pt. The maximum NO conversion of Pt/Si-MCM-41 catalyst decreased obviously to 15% at 120 ℃ when the pore structure of Si-MCM-41 support was destroyed. The reaction mechanism over Pt/Si-MCM-41 was investigated using in situ diffuse reflectance infrared spectroscopy (DRIFTS), which revealed that the main reaction intermediates should be nitrate species during NO reduction.
