Formaldehyde (HCHO) and carbon monoxide (CO) are both common air pollutants and hazardous to human body. It is imperative to develop the catalyst that is able to efficiently remove these pollutants. In this work, we activated Pt-MnO2 under different conditions for highly active oxidation of HCHO and CO, and the catalyst activated under CO displayed superior performance. A suite of complementary characterizations revealed that the catalyst activated with CO created the highly dispersed Pt nanoparticles to maintain a more positively charged state of Pt, which appropriately weakens the Mn-O bonding strength in the adjacent region of Pt for efficient supply of active oxygen during the reaction. Compared with other catalysts activated under different conditions, the CO-activated Pt-MnO2 displays much higher activity for oxidation of HCHO and CO. This research contributes to elucidating the mechanism for regulating the oxidation activity of Pt-based catalyst.
