Titania supported palladium oxide (PdO) chemochromic pigments have been used in various hydrogen sensing devices as a passive technique for detecting hydrogen leaks. Here, we present new data for the kinetics of titania-supported PdO reduction by hydrogen gas by means of thermogravimetric/differential thermal (TG/DTA) analysis. The TG/DTA thermograms show a two step process. The first step in the process is an induction period during which no color change occurs - having zero reaction order with respect to palladium oxide concentration [PdO]. A color change is associated with the second step during which the adsorbed hydrogen reacts with PdO center dot center dot center dot H species to form water. This step has fast kinetics with reaction order of 0.55 and zero with respect to [PdO center dot center dot center dot H] and [H-2], respectively. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
