  • K3PO4 deactivated the Ce-Ti oxide seriously.
  • A decrease in oxygen vacancies and surface oxygen species due to the decrease in Ce3+.
  • Degradation of surface Brønsted acidity and reducibility.


The effect of K3PO4 on the selective catalytic reduction of NO with NH3 over a Ce-Ti oxide catalyst was investigated using XRD, BET, XPS, NH3-TPD, H2-TPR and activity measurements. The results showed that K3PO4 deactivated the Ce-Ti oxide catalyst seriously. The drop in the amount of Ce3+ was accompanied by a decrease in oxygen vacancies and active surface oxygen species, which was disadvantageous to the SCR reaction over the Ce-Ti oxide catalyst. In addition, a reduction in the Brønsted surface acidity and reducibility was also responsible for the deactivation of the Ce-Ti oxide catalyst by K3PO4.
