Abstract: A study on the preparation of thin films of ZSM-5 and BETA zeolites, and a SAPO-5 silicoaluminophosphate, supported on cordierite honeycomb monoliths by in situ synthesis was carried out for their use as catalyst supports. Furthermore γ-Al2O3 was also coated onto a cordierite honeycomb monolith by a dip-coating method for use as a standard support. Structured monolithic catalysts were prepared by impregnation of the aforementioned coated monoliths with polymer-protected Pd nanoparticles. The monolithic catalysts have been tested for the total oxidation of naphthalene (100 ppm, GHSV 1220 h−1). From the combined use of the zeolite with polymer-protected nanoparticles, enhanced catalytic properties have been found for the total abatement of naphthalene. The Pd/MBETA and Pd/MZSM-5 catalytic monoliths have shown excellent activity with a high degree of stability, even after undergoing accelerated ageing experiments.
