What is the significance of the large specific surface area of a carbon monoxide catalyst?

What is specific surface area?

Specific surface area refers to the total area per unit mass of material. The unit is m2/g. It usually refers to the specific surface area of solid materials, such as powder, fiber, granules, flakes, blocks and other materials. The specific surface area is divided into two categories: external area and internal surface area. Since the external specific surface area of the catalyst is basically negligible, the catalyst generally refers to the internal specific surface area.

The role of specific surface area

Specific surface area is the means and way in which a solid interacts with its surrounding environment, especially liquids and gases. Especially in the field of catalysts, when it occurs between a solid and a gas, the specific surface area is expressed as adsorption or catalytic ability. Therefore, the larger the specific surface area, the better the catalytic performance.

Carbon monoxide catalysts with high specific surface areas have the following performance advantages:

1. Greater reactivity

A high specific surface area means that more molecules can be exposed on the surface, thereby increasing the chances of contact with other substances. In chemical reactions, more reactive sites can increase reaction rate and efficiency. For example, high specific surface area carbon monoxide catalysts can provide more active sites in catalytic reactions and promote the progress of the reaction.

2. Better adsorption capacity

High specific surface area carbon monoxide catalysts can adsorb gases, liquids and solid molecules. Its diverse adsorption sites and larger surface area provide stronger adsorption capacity and therefore have significant advantages in applications such as carbon monoxide adsorption.

3. Higher dispersion

High specific surface area carbon monoxide catalyst particles are smaller and more evenly dispersed in the medium. This helps increase the chances of contact with other substances, thereby improving reaction efficiency and product quality.

4. Greater catalytic activity

High specific surface area carbon monoxide catalysts provide more catalytically active sites and increase the efficiency of the catalyst. In industrial catalytic reactions, high surface area catalysts can achieve higher reaction rates at lower temperatures and pressures, reducing production costs.
