Optical detection of organic hydrides with platinum-loaded tungsten trioxide

Yoshimura, Kimio; Hakoda, Teruyuki; Yamamoto, Shunya; Yoshikawa, Masahito

Tungsten trioxide powder with loading 0.1wt% platinum (Pt/WO$$_{3}$$) was prepared for opticaldetection of organic hydrides such as cyclohexane, decalin by impregnation with PtCl$$_6^{2-}$$ and subsequent calcination in N$$_{2}$$ gas at 500$$^{circ}$$C. The SEM observation of Pt/WO$$_{3}$$ shows that the Pt particles with mean diameters of 80-100 nm were on the surface of the WO$$_{3}$$ powder. The Pt/WO$$_{3}$$ showed coloration for 13% cyclohexane at higher 100$$^{circ}$$C and for 1.3% cyclohexane at 200$$^{circ}$$C. The in-situ XRD results of the Pt/WO$$_{3}$$ in coloring/bleaching change indicate that the coloring of Pt/WO$$_{3}$$ was caused by transformation of WO$$_{3}$$ to tungsten bronze. The analysis of reacted gas demonstrates that Pt on WO$$_{3}$$ produces only hydrogen and benzene through dehydrogenation of cyclohexane over 100$$^{circ}$$C. It was founded that the Pt/WO$$_{3}$$ has potential of optical detection of organic hydrides by heating at higher 100$$^{circ}$$C.
