The catalytic properties of Pt supported on zeolite P (ZP)-based materials for the preferential CO oxidation in hydrogen atmosphere under mild conditions (from room temperature to 150 C), have been investigated. Pt catalysts (1–4 wt%) supported on a zeolitized pumice support (Z-PM) have been prepared. A series of bimetallic Pt–Fe on ZP, having 2 wt% Pt and different Fe loading (0.5–4 wt%), have been also prepared and used as model catalysts. A detailed characterization of the catalysts has been carried out by means of surface area and porosity measurements, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy in order to investigate the morphological and microstructural properties of both support and catalytic system. Pt/Z-PM exhibited complete CO conversion with 55 % selectivity at temperatures as low as 50 C, with no noticeable degradation of the catalytic performances, indicating that the Fe content present as an impurity in the zeolitized pumice support allows to obtain catalysts characterized by high activity and stability. On the basis of the characterization and kinetic tests, hypotheses on the role of Fe promoter have been formulated.
