Selective oxidation of CO in H-2-rich stream was studied over ZSM5 zeolite supported Ru catalysts and the results were compared with those obtained over Ru samples supported on alumina, silica and ceria. ZSM5 zeolite supported Ru catalysts exhibited higher yields to CO2 than Ru samples on other supports. The SiO2/Al2O3 ratio of the zeolite was found to strongly affect the performance of the Ru/ZSM5 system, the Ru sample supported on the H-ZSM5 with the highest SiO2/Al2O3 ratio (280) being the most efficient towards the CO selective oxidation. The form of the zeolite (H- or Na-) had instead a lower influence. On the basis of characterization data (TEM, XPS, H-2-TPR, NH3-TPD) it was pointed out that the performance of the Ru/ZSM5 samples are strongly dependent on the Lewis acidity of the zeolite and/or the Ru particle size, a lower number of Lewis acid sites and bigger Ru particles resulting in higher CO2 yields.

Abstract

Selective oxidation of CO in H-2-rich stream was studied over ZSM5 zeolite supported Ru catalysts and the results were compared with those obtained over Ru samples supported on alumina, silica and ceria. ZSM5 zeolite supported Ru catalysts exhibited higher yields to CO2 than Ru samples on other supports. The SiO2/Al2O3 ratio of the zeolite was found to strongly affect the performance of the Ru/ZSM5 system, the Ru sample supported on the H-ZSM5 with the highest SiO2/Al2O3 ratio (280) being the most efficient towards the CO selective oxidation. The form of the zeolite (H- or Na-) had instead a lower influence. On the basis of characterization data (TEM, XPS, H-2-TPR, NH3-TPD) it was pointed out that the performance of the Ru/ZSM5 samples are strongly dependent on the Lewis acidity of the zeolite and/or the Ru particle size, a lower number of Lewis acid sites and bigger Ru particles resulting in higher CO2 yields.
