Catalytic oxidation of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) was carried out over catalysts prepared from different nanostructured mesoporous TiO presenting high surface areas and mesoporosity from 2.9 to 10.1 nm. These Pd impregnated solids were found to be powerful catalysts for total oxidation of toluene. However, the pore diameter of 2.9 nm, leading to palladium particles accessible and reducible in the mesopores should explain the interesting catalytic behavior of the Pd/mesoporous TiO sample prepared by CTMABr surfactant and calcined at 400°C.
