Preserving air quality of an enclosed space such as a submarine is a major challenge yet to be addressed. Currently, CO-H2 burners are employed to maintain a breathable air environment inside the submarine through catalytic conversion of contaminants being present in the air thereof into CO2 + H2O. These burners use a mixture of manganese and copper oxides referred to as hopcalite. Unfortunately, this catalyst presents a reasonable oxidation activity only above 150ºC as it suffers from strong i...
