These work considers effect of doping of nanocrystalline CeO2-ZrO2 supports with La, Pr or Gd cations on the oxygen mobility, surface features and properties of supported Pt as related to CH4 or acetone transformation into syngas at short contact times. Samples surface features were studied by SIMS and FTIRS of adsorbed CO or NO. The oxygen mobility was characterized by the oxygen isotope exchange and H2 TPR. Catalytic activity was studied in the flow installation using diluted feeds. Within each series, for both reactions, catalytic activity correlates with the Pt dispersion controlled by the oxidized samples ability to stabilize Pt2+ cations as precursors of small reactive Pt clusters formed under reaction conditions. Concentration of these cations correlates with the density of Lewis acid sites -Me4+ cations as well as domain boundaries. Among samples of different series, at comparable Pt dispersion, the highest performance was demonstrated by La-doped system, which correlates with the highest surface/near-surface oxygen mobility. This, is turn, correlates with the lowest strength of Ce-O and Zr-O bonds in the surface layer as judged by the ratio of CeO+/Ce+ and ZrO+/Zr+ ion currents by SIMS.
