  • Production of Biodiesel Through Esterification Reaction Using Choline
           Exchanging Polytungstoboronic Acids as Temperature-Responsive Catalysts
    • Authors: Siqi Yan; Tong Tong; Yue Li; Shifa Ullah Khan; Jing Zhao; Shengtian Wang; Xiaohong Wang
      Abstract: Abstract High proton content polytungstoboronic acid H7BW11TiO40 (abbreviated as H7BW11Ti) had been prepared through titanium mono-substituted of H5BW12O40, which was evaluated in esterification of palmitic acid with methanol. H7BW11Ti could promote esterification reaction with almost 100% conversion of 417 mol/mol h TOF within very short time of 1 h at methanol/acid ratio of 25:1 under reaction temperature of 65 °C, which was attributed to the higher Brønsted acidity and cooperation of Lewis acidic site generating from Ti substituent. Limitation by its homogeneous performance, solidification of H7BW11Ti was designed via partial exchanging protons with choline cation (abbreviated as Ch+) to prepare a series of [(CH3)3NCH2CH2OH]nH7−nBW11TiO40 (abbreviated as ChnH7−nBW11Ti, n = 0 ~ 7). Among all solid catalysts, the highest efficiency had been achieved by with 99.0% conversion and 429 mol/mol h TOF within 50 min at 65 °C at methanol/acid ratio of 15:1. The comparable activity was attributed to the cooperation of Ch+—self-assembling to form nanoreactor with amphiphilic surrounding to concentrate substrates and to resist to water-poison, temperature-responsive property to control form changing between heterogeneous to homogenous. This temperature-responsive HPA catalyst was available for production of biodiesel through esterification reaction. In addition, Separation of such heteropolyacid catalysts was easy by the lowering the reaction temperature to room temperature without appreciable loss of its high performance, which were reused for more than six times.

  • The Solid-State-Grinding Synthesis of Maganese-Modified Cobalt Oxides and
           Application in the Low-Temperature CO Preferential Oxidation in H 2 -Rich
           Gases
    • Authors: Changxiang Liu; Lei Gong; Meijuan Lu; Tingting Sun; Runying Dai; Qian Liu; Xigen Huang; Guangbin Liu; Zhong Huang
      Abstract: Abstract A series of MnOx modified cobalt oxides with different atomic molar ratios of Mn/(Mn + Co) were prepared by a soft reactive grinding route and investigated for CO preferential oxidation in H2. It was found that as-prepared Mn-doped cobalt oxides exhibited superior activity compared to the single constituted oxides, other Mn–Co–O mixed oxides synthesized by solution-based route, and other grinding-derived mixed metal oxides M–Co–O (M = Zn, Ni, Cu, Fe). The grinding-derived MnCo10 catalyst with Mn/(Mn + Co) molar ration of 10% showed the best CO oxidation activity and higher selectivity at low temperature. The surface richness of Co3+ was not found as increasing the Mn molar ratio in the present work. However, the incoporation of MnOx with proper amount into Co3O4 could produce high surface area, high structure defects, and rich surface active oxygen species, while the ability to supply the active oxygen species was suggested to play the crucial role in promoting the catalytic performance of Mn–Co–O mixed oxides.

  • Synthesis and Catalytic Property of Fibrous Titanium-Containing Graphite
           Oxide
    • Authors: Cheng Pan; Benhua Huang; Xiaoyong Li; Hua Zhu; Donghua Zhang; Aqun Zheng; Yu Li; Yang Sun
      Abstract: Abstract A new layered graphite oxide is synthesized by a two-step oxidation of commercial graphite powders, which is further covalently modified by a titanium complex in order for oxidation of alkenes. Characterizations reveal the present graphite oxide is thicker than classical graphene oxide, but shows fibrous morphology after modification of titanium complex. Furthermore, the composition and morphology of synthetic composite are highly relative to the heating condition in preparation. In catalysis, high conversions of alkenes as well as various oxidized products are obtained by using available and green terminal oxidants. Lastly, a composite catalyst is reused for nine rounds in oxidation of R-(+)-limonene, approving its satisfactory stability for recycling. This work provides a highly promising catalytic material, showing values for the design of solid catalysts.

  • Effect of Calcination Temperature on the Catalytic Oxidation of
           Formaldehyde Over Co 3 O 4 –CeO 2 Catalysts
    • Authors: Fenglin Huang; Canchang Chen; Fan Wang; Bing Wang; Lulu Zhang; Suhong Lu; Kelun Li
      Abstract: Abstract The effect of calcination temperature (350–650 °C) on the structure and catalytic activity of Co3O4–CeO2 mixed oxides prepared by sol–gel method was investigated by XRD, H2-TPR, O2-TPD and formaldehyde (HCHO) oxidation. The Co3O4–CeO2 calcined at 450 °C (Co3O4–CeO2-450) exhibited the best performance, showing that the complete oxidation of HCHO was achieved at temperature as low as 80 °C. The results of characterizations revealed that the Co3O4–CeO2-450 had excellent catalytic activity due to the larger specific surface area, the best reducibility and more abundant surface active oxygen species.

  • Hydrogen Production by Steam Reforming of Ethanol Over Mesoporous Ni–Al
           2 O 3 –ZrO 2 Catalysts
    • Authors: Ji Hwan Song; Seung Ju Han; In Kyu Song
      Abstract: Abstract This review paper reports the recent progress concerning the application of nickel–alumina–zirconia based catalysts to the ethanol steam reforming for hydrogen production. Several series of mesoporous nickel–alumina–zirconia based catalysts were prepared by an epoxide-initiated sol–gel method. The first series comprised Ni–Al2O3–ZrO2 xerogel catalysts with diverse Zr/Al molar ratios. Chemical species maintained a well-dispersed state, while catalyst acidity decreased with increasing Zr/Al molar ratio. An optimal amount of Zr (Zr/Al molar ratio of 0.2) was required to achieve the highest hydrogen yield. In the second series, Ni–Al2O3–ZrO2 xerogel catalysts with different Ni content were examined. Reducibility and nickel surface area of the catalysts could be modulated by changing nickel content. Ni–Al2O3–ZrO2 catalyst with 15 wt% of nickel content showed the highest nickel surface area and the best catalytic performance. In the catalysts where copper was introduced as an additive (Cu–Ni–Al2O3–ZrO2), it was found that nickel dispersion, nickel surface area, and ethanol adsorption capacity were enhanced at an appropriate amount of copper introduction, leading to a promising catalytic activity. Ni–Sr–Al2O3–ZrO2 catalysts prepared by changing drying method were tested as well. Textural properties of Ni–Sr–Al2O3–ZrO2 aerogel catalyst produced from supercritical drying were enhanced when compared to those of xerogel catalyst produced from conventional drying. Nickel dispersion and nickel surface area were higher on Ni–Sr–Al2O3–ZrO2 aerogel catalyst, which led to higher hydrogen yield and catalyst stability over Ni–Sr–Al2O3–ZrO2 aerogel catalyst.

  • 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.

      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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
