Abstract—This work addresses the activity of the catalytic performance of Pt and Ce-Mn-based materials, during the catalytic wet formaldehyde oxidation reaction at ppm concentrations. The comparison of Pt supported in alumina vs. Ce-Mn-based catalysts is presented. The total conversion was 80% with Pt/Al2O3 at 80°C, which turned out to be more effective in removing the organic pollutant compared with the mixed oxide. By-products formation such as acetic and oxalic acids was determined along with carbonaceous deposits.

Index Terms—Catalytic wet oxidation, formaldehyde removal, oxidation, Pt and Ce-Mn catalysts, batch reactor.
