Influence de la morphologie d'oxydes à base de cérium sur les relations (micro)structures/propriétés

Abstract : Recent decades, numerous studies on cerium-based oxides have been realized and have revealed that cerium-based oxides were materials of choice in the field of heterogeneous catalysis. The aim now is therefore to increase the reactivity of these oxides, while expanding their range of optimal temperatures of Use. In this particular context, it seems possible to modulate the properties of cerium-based oxides by controlling the morphology of the crystallites. This thesis has been devoted to the identification, development and characterization of materials based on cerium oxides of controlled morphology. We first determined possible morphologies for the studied system, by hydrothermal synthesis by micro-wave assisted heating we have synthesized these morphologies and we characterized reactivity of these materials by infrared thermography and TGA. We have optimized these materials first, by extrinsic doping (deposition of precious metals) and then by intrinsic doping (Yttrium and Iron). New morphologies have been synthesized so we have studied the processes of nucleation-growth set in. The high reactivity of iron-doped materials has led us to a detailed characterization of the microstructure of these materials. Finally correlation reactivity/morphologies of crystallites have been achieved.
