Using CeO2-based fabrics in catalysis has attracted substantial consciousness lately, quite in purposes like environmental catalysis, the place ceria has proven nice strength. This quantity seriously experiences advances within the box, with the point of interest on either primary and utilized concerns. the 1st few chapters hide structural and chemical houses of ceria and comparable fabrics, similar to part balance, aid behaviour, synthesis, interplay with probe molecules (CO, O2, NO), and metal-support interplay - all provided from the point of view of catalytic functions. using computational strategies and ceria surfaces and movies for version catalytic stories also are reviewed. the second one a part of the paintings offers a severe review of the position of ceria within the most crucial catalytic techniques: three-way catalysis, catalytic rainy oxidation and fluid catalytic cracking. different subject matters contain oxidation-combustion catalysts, electrocatalysis and using cerium catalysts/additives in diesel soot abatement know-how.
