In the present work diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier transform (DRIFT) spectroscopy is applied to study the adsorption of NO(x) at 300-500 °C in different atmospheres on gadolinium-doped ceria (CGO), an important material in electrodes investigated for electrochemical NO(x) removal. Furthermore, the effect on the NO(x) adsorption when adding K(2)O or BaO to the CGO is investigated. The DRIFT study shows mainly the presence of nitrate species at 500 °C, whereas at lower temperature a diversity of adsorbed NO(x) species exists on the CGO. The presence of O(2) is shown to have a strong effect on the adsorption of NO, but no effect on the adsorption of NO(2). Addition of K(2)O and BaO dramatically affects the NO(x) adsorption and the results also show that the adsorbed NO(x) species are mobile and capable of changing adsorption state in the investigated temperature range.
