Nanoparticles of Pt, Pd, Ag and Au supported on alpha-Al2O3 have been synthesized by the combustion method for the first time and characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Catalytic activities of these nanosized materials have been investigated. For the CO+O-2 reaction, 100% CO conversion occurs below 300 degrees C over supported Pt, Pd and Ag metals whereas 90% conversion is observed over Au at 450 degrees C. Similarly 100% NO conversion is seen over 1% Pd/Al2O3 and 1% Pt/Al2O3 below 400 degrees C for the NO+CO reaction whereas approximate to 90% NO is converted into N-2 above 650 degrees C on 1% Ag/Al2O3 and 1% Au/Al2O3.
