Kinetics of CeO2 Surface Area Reduction in a Mixture of HCI, H2O, and O2

Abstract : Surface area reduction of a cerium dioxide powder is studied at 900 K in a HCI, H2O, and O2 atmosphere. The rate of surface area decrease is determined as a function of the surface chloride content and of the partial pressure of hydrogen chloride. It is shown that particle growth occurs due to the surface diffusion of cerium and hydroxyl ions, which results from hydrogen chloride adsorption. Adsorbed chloride ions react to give gaseous chlorine. The rate-determining step of the process of initial coarsening is hydrogen chloride fixation at the surface of cerium dioxide particles.
