Abstract: Catalysts based on nanoparticles of silver and metal oxides supported on foam ceramics were tested in the process of oxidation of carbon monoxide. Foam catalysts have physicochemical, fluid dynamic and catalytic characteristics exceeding the indices of the traditional granular and honeycomb catalysts. Addition of silver nanoparticles increases the catalytic activity of the foam catalysts with mixed oxide active phase.

Keywords: catalystic activity; foam ceramics; CO oxidation; carbon monoxide; silver nanoparticles; nanotechnology.
