Abstract

This paper describes the activity of Pt catalysts supported on metal-oxides (TiO2, ZrO2 and Al2O3) for the reduction reaction of selenate with hydrazine monohydrate in aqueous solution. The Pt/TiO2 catalyst exhibited superior performance in the reduction reaction of selenate with hydrazine monohydrate, compared with the Pt/ZrO2 and Pt/Al2O3 catalysts. The deactivation of Pt/TiO2 catalyst was attributed to the coverage of Pt particles by reduction product Se metal. To overcome this problem, a Pt catalyst supported on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) coated with TiO2 (TiO2/CNT) was also prepared. The selenate conversion over the Pt/TiO2/CNT catalyst was much higher than that over the Pt/TiO2 catalyst of the same Pt loading. Incorporating CNTs significantly improved the catalytic activity and durability of the Pt catalyst for the reduction of selenate.
