In this study, the effect of calcination temperature on the production of RuTi catalyst in NH3-SCO (selective catalytic oxidation) was investigated. The RuTi catalyst was prepared using the wet impregnation method, and calcined at 400~600 ℃ for 4 h in air condition. The catalysts were named RuTi x00 where x00 means the calcination temperature. According to XRD (X-Ray diffraction), TEM (transmission electron microscope), H2-TPR (H2-temperature programmed reduction) analyses, RuTi x00 catalysts displayed that the dispersion of active metal decreased via increasing the calcination temperature. The catalysts with low dispersion showed a decrease in the surface adsorption oxygen species (Oβ) and NH3 adsorption amount via XPS, and NH3-TPD analyses. Therefore, the RuTi 400 catalyst was well dispersed in the active metal on TiO2 surface, and also, the NH3 removal efficiency was excellent.
