For hydrogen mitigation, a new type passive autocatalytic recombiner is under developing. This new recombiner has been developed from automotive monolithic catalyst in order to reduce weight and to improve hydrogen treating capacity, environmental resistance and product quality. In this study, activation energy of hydrogen-oxygen recombination reaction was examined to clarify the basic characteristics of the catalyst. In addition, the degradation of the catalyst by $$gamma$$-ray irradiation simulating the environmental condition in nuclear power plants was also examined. As a result, the activation energy was experimentally estimated at 5.75 kJ/mol. Besides, no significant differences were observed in compositional distribution from the EPMA results. On the other hand, specific surface area of the catalyst and surface area of the precious metals were increased. Moreover, catalyst performance test showed that $$gamma$$-ray irradiation up to 1.0 MGy can increase activity of catalyst.
