The hypothesis that a model, incorporating appropriate experimentally obtained intrinsic kinetics and the real pore structure of the support, could accurately predict the real kinetic performance of a catalyst pellet was investigated. Four different spherical pellet diameters of platinum supported on gamma alumina (0.1, 0.4, 1.2 and 2.5 mm) were used as a model catalyst and carbon monoxide oxidation was used as a probe reaction to make the connection between the real physico-chemical properties of the catalyst pellets and their real kinetic performance.
