"Promotional Effects of Zn Doping on Cu/Core-Shell Al-MCM-41 for Selective Catalytic Reduction of NO with NH3";
Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology,
A Cu-Zn/core-shell Al-MCM-41 catalyst with various Cu and Zn species was investigated for selective catalytic reduction of NO with NH3. The roles of Zn in the NOx adsorption properties and the acidity of the catalysts were studied by temperature-programmed desorption of NOx and in situ Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy of NO+O3 adsorption and NH3 adsorption. The presence of Zn can promote the number of acid sites and improve the NOx adsorption capacity by providing the additional sites for NOx adsorption and subsequent nitrite and nitrate formation. Based on the experimental results, a possible reaction pathway was suggested. Cu-Zn/Al-MCM-41 exhibited higher activity compared with that of Cu/Al-MCM-41, having an average NO conversion of 73%. However, the average NO conversion was increased to 77% when Zn was loaded as ZnO form instead of various Zn species. In situ X-ray adsorption near edge structure during reduction by H2 revealed that there is a higher number of Cu+ in Cu-ZnO/Al-MCM-41 than that in Cu-Zn/Al-MCM-41. Under wet condition, the average NO conversion of Cu-ZnO/core-shell Al-MCM-41 was dropped to 68%. However, activity of Cu-ZnO/core-shell Al-MCM-41 was more stable than that of Cu-Zn/core-shell Al-MCM-41.
