The three-way catalytic behaviour (CO, HC and NO x conversions and light-off temperatures) of MN/CeO 2/Al 2O 3 (MN: Pt, Rh, Pt-Rh) catalysts, fresh and aged under severe oxidizing, reducing and cycled environments, has been analyzed. The bimetallic Pt-Rh catalyst resulted the most active among those tested.

Le comportement catalytique (conversions de CO, HC et NO x et temperature d'ignition) de catalyseurs trois-voies MN/CeO 2/Al 2O 3 (MN : Pt, Rh, Pt-Rh) frais et vieillis sous sévère conditions en environnement oxydant, réducteur et cyclique, a été analysé. Les résultats obtenus indiquent que parmi les catalyseurs étudiés, le bi- metallique Pt-Rh est le plus actif.

Key words: TWC, three-way catalyst, thermal aging, light-off temperature
