A kinetic mathematical model has been applied to investigate for the first time the effects of Pd particle size on the rates of oxygen back-spillover and CO oxidation during Oxygen Storage Capacity (OSC) measurements under dynamic conditions over Pd/CeO2 catalysts in the 500-700°C range. The dependence of the intrinsic rate constant k1 of the CO oxidation reaction on PdO, and that of k2 app of the oxygen back-spillover from ceria to Pd/PdO on the palladium particle size was estimated by performing curve-fitting of the experimental CO and CO2 pulse transient responses obtained. Activation energies of 8.0, 9.5 and 21.1 kJ/mol were calculated for the Eley-Rideal step of CO oxidation for the 1.3, 1.8 and 16.4 nm Pd particles, respectively, supported on CeO2. The transient rates of CO oxidation and oxygen back-spillover were found to decrease with increasing Pd particle size. © 2007 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
