  • Highly Efficient Mesoporous V 2 O 5 /WO 3 –TiO 2 Catalyst for Selective
           Catalytic Reduction of NO x : Effect of the Valence of V on the Catalytic
           Performance
    • Authors: Luyao Zong; Fang Dong; Guodong Zhang; Weiliang Han; Zhicheng Tang; Jiyi Zhang
      Abstract: Abstract Mesoporous WO3–TiO2 support was synthesized by hydrothermal method, mesoporous V2O5/WO3–TiO2 catalyst was synthesized by impregnation method and used for selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of NOx with a excellent NOx conversion at a wider operating temperature ranging from 200 to 460 °C. In the range of 260–440 °C, NOx conversion reached to 98.6%, and nearly a complete conversion. Even with the existence of 300 ppm SO2, NOx conversion was only a little decline. The catalyst was characterized by a series of techniques, such as XRD, BET, XPS, TEM, Raman and H2-TPR. It was concluded that V2O5/WO3–TiO2 catalyst was ascribe to antase TiO2, and also the high crystallinity of anatase TiO2 could improve the SCR performance. More interested, V2O5/WO3–TiO2 catalyst exhibited the typical mesoporous structure according to the BET results. In addition, the TEM results indicated that the active components of V and W were well-dispersed on the surface of TiO2, while the enhancement of dispersion could improve the activity of catalysts. More importantly, the concentration ratio of V4+/(V5+ + V4+ + V3+) performed the key role in improving the activity of V2O5/WO3–TiO2 catalyst.

  • A Comparison of NO Reduction Over Mn–Cu/ZSM5 and Mn–Cu/MWCNTs
           Catalysts Assisted by Plasma at Ambient Temperature
    • Authors: Tao Wang; Xinyu Zhang; Hanzi Liu; Yonghong Guo; Yongsheng Zhang; Yang Wang; Baomin Sun
      Abstract: Abstract Manganese–copper bimetal oxide catalysts supported on ZSM5 and acid-treated multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were produced by incipient wetness impregnation for selective catalytic reduction of NO with dielectric barrier discharge plasma. Plasma can activate molecules even at ambient temperature, generating active oxygen species such as O, O3, and HO2 radicals, which can oxidize NO to NO2 effectively. The SCR activity of Mn–Cu/MWCNTs was studied and compared to that of the Mn–Cu/ZSM5. The obtained samples were characterized by XRD, SEM, TEM, ICP, H2-TPR, Raman spectroscopy, and XPS. The results show that Mn–Cu/MWCNTs catalyst possesses NO removal activity superior to that of the Mn–Cu/ZSM5 catalyst. MWCNTs-based catalyst attains NO removal efficiency of 88% at 480 J/L, while the ZSM5-supported catalyst achieves NO removal efficiency of 82% at the same energy density. The oxygen content increased from 3.33 to 19.07% on the nanotube surface after introducing Mn and Cu, which almost remained unchanged on ZSM5. The oxygen-containing functionalities are important for NOx adsorption and removal. Moreover, the characterization revealed that CuO is the main phase of copper oxide, but copper dispersion decreases on Mn–Cu/ZSM5 surface because of the formation of copper dimer species. The manganese is well-dispersed on the catalysts, MnO2 and Mn2O3 contents of Mn–Cu/MWCNTs are larger than that of Mn–Cu/ZSM5, MnO2 is the predominant phase of manganese oxide.

  • Design and Exploration of –SO 3 H Group Functionalized Brønsted Acidic
           Ionic Liquids (BAILs) as Task-Specific Catalytic Systems for Organic
           Reactions: A Review of Literature
    • Authors: Parishmita Sarma; Arup Kumar Dutta; Ruli Borah
      Abstract: Abstract For several decades various chemical industries are involved in environment pollution by using hazardous chemicals or excessive use of solvents or catalysts to get maximum amount of desired product. In this case acidic ionic liquids may act as safer substitute of volatile organic solvents/or traditional Brønsted or Lewis acid catalysts with their unique dual task-specific solvent-catalyst properties. Recent surge in the literature review clearly describes the importance, properties and applications of acidic ionic liquids as solvent and efficient reusable catalyst in organic reactions. This review presents an account of some recent reports indicating the synthesis and uses of –SO3H functionalized ionic liquids(SFILs) as catalyst in organic synthesis.

  • Highly Ordered Mesoporous Cobalt-Copper Composite Oxides for Preferential
           CO Oxidation
    • Authors: Mingshi Jin; Zhenghua Li; Wenxiang Piao; Jing Chen; Long Yi Jin; Ji Man Kim
      Abstract: Abstract Highly ordered mesoporous cobalt-copper composite oxides were prepared by the nanocasting method with various Co and Cu ratios. The catalysts obtained were characterized by X-ray diffraction, N2 adsorption–desorption, H2-temperature programmed reduction, CO-temperature programmed desorption and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. All of the catalysts had uniform mesopores and high surface areas. The distinct catalytic properties of these well-characterized mesoporous materials were demonstrated for preferential CO oxidation. It is found that the mesoporous cobalt-copper composite oxides, exhibited the higher catalytic activity for CO conversion and selectivity compared with the mesoporous Co3O4 and mesoporous CuO. Among these catalysts the mesoporous cobalt-copper catalyst with Co:Cu molar ratio of 70:30, shows the best catalytic activity and the broadest operating temperature “window” for the high CO conversion in the range of 125–200oC. The higher catalytic activity was attributed to the higher CO adsorption and oxygen vacancies.

    • Authors: Shagufta; Irshad Ahmad; Rahul Dhar
      Abstract: Abstract The recent development of an environmentally benign solid acid catalyst has been a relatively cutting-edge area of research in the synthesis of value added esters and biodiesel. Solid acid catalysts are economically viable, effective, and environmentally amicable than conventional homogeneous catalysts and reusability of the catalyst is another advantage of these catalysts. The applicability of sulfonic acid-functionalized solid acid catalysts in the well-known esterification and transesterification reactions for the synthesis of esters and biodiesel, respectively along with their reusability aspect are discussed in this review.

  • CeO 2 –ZrO 2 –Al 2 O 3 Ternary Oxides Synthesized via Supercritical
           Anti-Solvent and as a Support for Pd Catalyst for CO Oxidation
    • Authors: Haoxi Jiang; Xiaohui Wu; Caixia Wang; Pan Huang; Yonghui Li; Minhua Zhang
      Abstract: Abstract CeO2–ZrO2–Al2O3 ternary oxides as a support for CO oxidation was synthesized successfully via supercritical anti-solvent (SAS) precipitation using CO2 as the anti-solvent and methanol as the solvent. It was found that the CeO2–ZrO2–Al2O3 fabricated by SAS precipitation (CZA1) had superior resistance to sintering compared to the traditional co-precipitation method (CZA2). Meanwhile, the oxygen storage/release rate of CAZ1 was almost 1.5 times higher than that of CZA2 and the total oxygen storage capacity (OSC) of CAZ1 was almost twice as high as CZA2. The interactions between the Pd and the CeO2–ZrO2–Al2O3 support were stronger for the support synthesized by SAS precipitation. The conversion of CO oxidation of Pd/CZA1 was even better than that of Pd/CZA2, especially at high GHSV.

  • The Influence of Alkali Treatment for Synthesizing Hierarchical Zeolite on
           Behavior of Cobalt Fischer–Tropsch Synthesis Catalysts
    • Authors: Yuelun Wang; Xuewen Cao; Yuan Jiang; Hong Zhang; Jing Liang; Hui Wang; Zhuo Li; Jinhu Wu
      Abstract: Abstract Hierarchical zeolites were synthesized by alkali treatment and their applications in Fischer–Tropsch (FT) synthesis were studied. It was found that alkali treatment not only created hierarchical structure but also could tune cobalt-support interaction. The dissolution of Si by alkali treatment became easier with the increase of Si/Al ratio, and thus the amount of mesopority increased. An optimal Si/Al molar ratio was identified over the zeolite with Si/Al ratio of 80, which was found to be superior to other catalysts in terms of better diesel selectivity and lower CH4 selectivity due to its relatively narrow bimodal pore size distribution and moderate cobalt-support interaction. Meanwhile alkali treatment could enhance cobalt-support interaction via the formation of ɑ-SiO2, Co/MZ-120 catalyst showed the lowest FT activity and higher CH4 selectivity due to the increase of such new phase.

  • Design of a Highly Efficient Indium-Exchanged Heteropolytungstic Acid for
           Glycerol Esterification with Acetic Acid
    • Authors: Zhong Sun; Xixin Duan; Meilin Tao; Xiaohong Wang; Dandan Zhou
      Pages: 82 - 90
      Abstract: Abstract A series of highly active, selective, and stable solid indium-exchanged tungstophosphoric acid catalysts had been prepared, characterized and evaluated for bio-derived glycerol esterification with acetic acid to produce valuable biofuel additives. It was found that the Inx/3H3−xPW with nanotube structure owns Lewis acidity and Brønsted acidity in one, which favors for the efficient esterification of glycerol into monoglycerides with higher selectivity. Among all, In0.8H0.6PW presented exceptionally high activity with 88 % conversion and 96 % selectivity to MAG within 30 min of reaction time at 120 °C using 4:1 molar ratio. The better performance came from its remarkable stability, due to the unique Keggin structure, high acidity as well as nanotube structure. In addition, this In0.8H0.6PW catalyst did not suffer from deactivation of water in the six consecutive reaction tests.

      Abstract: Abstract This research focuses on high-value utilization of the lignin-derived phenol monomer and bioethanol from biorefining process. Supported-heteropolyacid is easily used as an efficient catalyst for the ethylation of phenol with bioethanol to obtain value-added products. Through adjusting the loading amount, different acidity amount and strength can be obtained, leading to the tunable selectivity to the phenol ethylation route and regioselectivity.

  • Chiral Mesoporous Silicates Immobilizing Titanium Dioxide for Catalytic
           Asymmetric Epoxidation of Alkenes
    • Authors: Benhua Huang; Xiaozhi Jia; Yu Li; Aqun Zheng; Yang Sun
      Abstract: Abstract Two kinds of titanium-containing silicates were prepared by doping of titanium salt and chiral additive in a sol-gel process, which were further modified by chiral sulfonyl chloride in order for catalytic asymmetric epoxidation of alkenes. These titanium-containing materials had good porosities, ordered pore size distributions, high titanium incorporation yields, ordered morphologies, as well as internal chiral configurations. Particularly, they contained a lot of titanium dioxide particles according to TEM. In catalysis, the titanium silicates showed good conversion of alkenes, satisfactory yields and e.e. values of epoxides. The chiral inducing synergy appeared between silicate matrix and attached ligand, which was significant for transformations of styrene and α-methylstyrene. Moreover, iodosylbenzene, tert-butyl hydroperoxide and hydrogen peroxide were all promising oxidants. In addition, the present titanium catalysts showed satisfactory recycling behaviors and chemical stabilities. This work would contribute to the design of efficient chiral catalysts.

  • Direct Synthesis of Hydrogen Peroxide from Hydrogen and Oxygen Using
           Tailored Pd Nanocatalysts: A Review of Recent Findings
    • Authors: Myung-gi Seo; Ho Joong Kim; Sang Soo Han; Kwan-Young Lee
      Abstract: Abstract Direct synthesis of hydrogen peroxide from hydrogen and oxygen is being actively studied as an alternative to the current manufacturing process. The direct synthesis route has not reached the point of commercialization because of low yields, but significant effort is being spent on enhancing the productivity. With advances in computational capacity, simulation studies based on DFT calculations now offer directions for catalyst improvement, but such modifications can only be realized through the application of nanoparticle synthesis techniques that allow for nanocrystal morphology and size control and unique immobilization. To date, there have only been a small number of studies on such nanoparticles with size and crystallographic homogeneity for the direct hydrogen peroxide synthesis. According to our knowledge no other group has systematically investigated application of nanoparticles in direct synthesis of hydrogen peroxide, and thus included in this review are primarily previous studies conducted by our group. In this review, we discuss the utilization of nanotechnology for the synthesis of Pd catalysts and its effect on the direct synthesis of hydrogen peroxide, and we suggest a direction for future studies.

  • Fabrication of Cu-Doped CeO 2 Catalysts with Different Dimension Pore
           Structures for CO Catalytic Oxidation
    • Authors: Yunfei Su; Lingfeng Dai; Qingwen Zhang; Yunzhen Li; Jiaxi Peng; Ren’an Wu; Weiliang Han; Zhicheng Tang; Yi Wang
      Abstract: Abstract Transition metal oxides (TMOs) applied as catalysts whose catalytic activities are directly affected by their pores size and pores distributions. Herein, two-dimensional Cu-doped CeO2 (2D@Cu–CeO2) and three-dimensional Cu-doped CeO2 (3D@Cu–CeO2) were prepared by adopting the mesoporous silica SBA-15 and KIT-6 as templates, respectively. Nanometer Cu-doped CeO2 (nano@Cu–CeO2) was synthesized by the method of precipitation. All catalysts were evaluated for the catalytic oxidation of CO, and the 3D@Cu–CeO2 catalyst exhibited the highest catalytic activity (complete conversion temperature T100 = 50 °C), which can be ascribed to the three-dimensional porous channel structure, larger specific surface area and abundant active surface oxygen species. In addition, complete conversion of CO had remained the same after 3D@Cu–CeO2 was observed for 12 h, indicating it has the best catalytic stability for CO.

  • Fischer-Trospch Synthesis on Ordered Mesoporous Cobalt-Based Catalysts
           with Compact Multichannel Fixed-Bed Reactor Application: A Review
    • Abstract: Abstract CO hydrogenation to hydrocarbons through Fischer–Tropsch synthesis (FTS) reaction is one of the promising chemical processes, which can convert alternative feedstocks such as natural gas or biomass into synthetic fuels. The FTS reaction has received many attentions due to a limited petroleum resource with an increased demand for using alternative carbon sources such as stranded gas or shale gas. Some proper synthetic methods of an effective FTS catalyst having a larger active metal surface area and a lower deactivation rate are the most important issues for a long-term operation. Therefore, some ordered mesoporous materials (OMM) have been widely investigated in the field of CO hydrogenation using some heterogeneous catalysts. The present brief review paper summarized the various preparation methods of the ordered mesoporous materials for the possible applications of FTS reaction with a lower deactivation rate and a higher catalytic performance. The applications of the ordered mesoporous cobalt oxides for FTS reaction are briefly introduced and the ways to improve a structural stability even under reductive CO hydrogenation conditions by using efficient pillaring materials as well as by preparing mixed metal oxides. A higher catalytic activity of the ordered mesoporous cobalt oxide was also verified in a multi-channel fixed-bed compact reactor having the intersected interlayers of micro-channel heat exchanger. The thermal stability of ordered mesoporous cobalt-based catalysts was mainly affected by a structural stability which can easily remove the heavy hydrocarbons from the inner surfaces.

  • Preparation and Photocatalytic Activity of SnO 2 @TiO 2 Core–Shell
           Composites Modified by Ag
    • Authors: Jianguo Sheng; Hebing Tong; Hui Xu; Cong Tang
      Abstract: Abstract Photocatalytic degradation is an important method to mediate organic pollution in the environment. This article reports Ag-modified SnO2@TiO2 core–shell composite photocatalysts prepared via a hydrothermal method. The Ag modification and core structure in the composite enhanced the photocatalytic activity and stability of TiO2 in Rhodamine B degradation under visible light irradiation. The composite modified in 0.15 M AgNO3 showed an optimal level of photocatalytic activity, as it degraded 99.14 % Rhodamine B in 60 min while pure TiO2 only degraded 45.7 % during the same time.

  • Recent Advances in the Preferential Thermal-/Photo-Oxidation of Carbon
           Monoxide: Noble Versus Inexpensive Metals and Their Reaction Mechanisms
    • Authors: Yusuke Yoshida; Yasuo Izumi
      Abstract: Preferential oxidation (PROX) of CO is applicable because of its low cost, ease of implementation, and low loss of H2 during purification. Mo–SiO2 and Cr–SiO2 photocatalysts utilized charge separation at metal=O bonds, and the PROX selectivity of CO was high. The CO PROX rates using semiconductor-based photocatalysts were comparable to those of photocatalysts (380 μmol h−1 g cat −1 ) and were also selective (100 %). These photocatalysts are advantageous because they do not activate H2 in comparison to noble metal catalysts. Below 473 K using noble metals, Ru, Rh, Pt, or Au supported on reducible metal oxides exhibited excellent CO thermal-PROX rates of ~4900 μmol h−1 g cat −1 ; however, the CO PROX selectivity of ~48 % was insufficient because of H2 activation on noble metals in nature. CO adsorbed onto TiO2 and O2 was stabilized at the interface between a Ti site and an Au atom. Weakly adsorbed water increased the effective number of active sites by stabilizing Au–OOH or Au–COOH. The PROX rates of CO using Au/TiO2-based catalysts under dark conditions increased under UV–visible light by the effect of charge separation and surface plasmon resonance and the promoted electron transfer to the adsorbed O2. In the case of CuO–CeO2 catalysts, CO adsorbed onto CuO and reacted with lattice O atoms at the boundary between CuO and CeO2 to form CO2 at an O vacancy, which was subsequently filled with an O2 molecule. The combination of Cu or Co with a reducible metal oxides also provided performance comparable to or higher than that of CuO–CeO2 owing to adequate standard reduction potential for Cu2+, Co3+, Mn3+/4+, and Ce4+. Finally, binary metal–organic framework consisting of oxyhydroxide Ti clusters interlinked by organic ligands and Cu oxyhydroxide ligands showed superior CO PROX performance (76 % conversion and 99 % selectivity) to that achieved using CuO–CeO2 owing to effective dispersion of Cu–O–Ti connection in microporous crystallites. Further progress is needed to alleviate the activity loss in the presence of moisture and/or CO2 based on suggestions that steric hindrance of some types of microporous crystallites would suppress the blocking of moisture or CO2.

  • Review of Acetic Acid Synthesis from Various Feedstocks Through Different
           Catalytic Processes
    • Authors: Anatta Wahyu Budiman; Ji Su Nam; Jae Hyun Park; Ryan Indra Mukti; Tae Sun Chang; Jong Wook Bae; Myoung Jae Choi
      Abstract: Abstract Acetic acid (AA) has been largely used with a wide range of applications such as a raw material for a synthesis of vinyl acetate monomer, cellulose acetate or acetate anhydrate, acetate ester and a solvent for a synthesis of terephthalic acid and so on. The present paper briefly summarizes the commercialized chemical processes with their Rh or Ir-based catalytic systems in a liquid-phase carbonylation reaction such as Monsanto, Cativa and Acetica processes. In addition, some alternative catalytic systems such as heterogeneous catalysts to produce AA by direct oxidation or indirect carbonylation of dimethyl ether through BP-SaaBre process in a gas-phase reaction to solve some problems such as a difficult separation of homogeneous catalysts in a corrosive reaction medium. Some home-made heterogeneous catalysts such as a rhodium incorporated graphitic carbon nitride (Rh-g-C3N4) and some heterogenized homogeneous catalysts using the supports of tungsten carbide, iron oxide or graphitic carbon nitride containing rhodium complexes were also introduced for the synthesis of AA through a liquid-phase methanol carbonylation reaction to effectively solve the leaching problem of active rhodium metal as well as to mitigate the separation problem of homogeneous catalysts.

  • A Green, Low-Cost and Efficient Photocatalyst: Atomic-Hydrogenated
           α-Fe 2 O 3
    • Authors: Qing-Yun Xiang; Jiang-Li Cao; Yue Li; Ya-Li Huang; Yu Shi; Jie Wang; Li-Bin Mo; Wen-Qing Yao
      Abstract: Abstract The environmental-friendly hematite iron oxide (α-Fe2O3) has important application prospects in the photocatalysis field owing to its narrow indirect band gap. Here, we report a band gap engineering of α-Fe2O3 by incorporation of electrochemically-generated atomic hydrogen at moderate conditions. The ultraviolet–visible spectra show the reduction of the α-Fe2O3 band gap after hydrogenation and the absorption region from 200–800 nm is enhanced, especially in the visible light region. First principles calculation reveals the mixing of the new hybrid energy level with the valence band top resulting in a decrease in the band gap of α-Fe2O3. Further photocatalytic degradation experiments of dyes demonstrate that the photocatalytic efficiency of α-Fe2O3 can be greatly enhanced by the atomic hydrogen incorporation. The hydrogenated α-Fe2O3 can be easily recycled by magnets and has good photocatalytic stability. These findings offer possibilities for utilizing this inexpensive and earth-abundant oxide materials in the pollution controlling areas.

      Abstract: Abstract Catalytic decomposition of nitrous oxide (N2O) is one of the most efficient methods for the removal of N2O which is of high greenhouse potential and ozone-depleting property. Recent progress in the decomposition of N2O has been reviewed with the focus on noble meal and metal oxide catalysts. The influence factors, such as catalyst support, preparation method, alkali metal additives and the reaction conditions (including O2, H2O, SO2, NO and CO2), on the performance of deN2O catalysts have been discussed. Finally, future research direction for the catalytic decomposition of N2O is proposed.

  • Theoretical Study of the Water-Gas Shift Reaction Catalyzed by Tungsten
           Carbonyls
    • Authors: Xiaoyu An; Ling Guo; Aixia Li; Zhaoru Cao; Naying Liu
      Abstract: Abstract A density functional theory calculation has been carried out to investigate the mechanism of W(CO)6 and W2(CO)10 catalyzed water-gas-shift reaction (WGSR). The calculations indicate that the bimetallic catalyst (W2(CO)10) would be likely to be more highly active than the mononuclear metal-based catalyst (W(CO)6) due to the possibility of metal–metal cooperativity in reducing the barriers for the WGSR. The energetic span model is a tool to compute catalytic turnover frequencies (TOFs) which is the traditional measure of the efficiency of a catalyst. The one with the highest efficiency usually gives the highest TOF. The bimetallic catalyst (W2(CO)10) exhibits high catalytic activity towards WGSR due to the highest value of the calculated TOF (3.62 × 10−12 s−1, gas phase; 8.74 × 10−15 s−1, solvent phase), which is higher than the value of TOF (8.96 × 10−20 s−1, gas phase; 3.96 × 10−19 s−1, solvent phase) proposed by Kuriakose et al. (Inorg Chem 51:377–385, 2012). Our results will be important for designing a better catalyst for the industrially important reaction.
