The effect of exothermal catalytic reaction of oxidation of carbon monoxide upon the strength and porosity of iron and nickel catalysts was analysed. It has been shown that during the course of this reaction at 573–623 K, a substantial four- to six-fold increase in the strength of the above catalysts occurs (under fixed porosity) if compared to samples annealed under the same temperature in an inert medium or in the presence of one of the components of the reaction. This effect is caused by facilitation of surface self-diffusion due to catalysis, and permits essential reduction of the sintering temperature. Similar effects have been observed on oxide (MgO, V2O5) catalysts.
