Abstract:

A new series of bimetallic oxynitride catalysts, M{sub 1}M{sub 2}O{sub x}N{sub y} (M{sub 1} = V{sub 1}, Nb, Cr, Mn and Co, M{sub 2} = Mo or W), was prepared by nitriding the bimetallic oxide precursors in an ammonia gas stream at 1000 cm{sup 3}/min (6.8x10{sup 2} {mu}mol s{sup -1}) while the temperature was raised at 5 K/min (8.3x10{sup -2} K s{sup -1}). The catalysts were characterized by x-ray diffraction, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, CO chemisorption and surface area measurements. The catalytic activity of these catalysts for mixture containing 3000 ppm sulfur (dibenzothiophene), 2000 ppm nitrogen (quinoline), 500 ppm oxygen (benzofuran), 20 wt% aromatics (15 wt% tetralin and 5 wt% amylbenzene) and balance aliphatics (tetradecane). The activities of the bimetallic oxynitrides were compared to a commercial sulfided Ni-Mo/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} catalyst tested at the same conditions. The bimetallic oxynitrides were active for quinoline HDN and V-Mo-O-N exhibiting higher HDN activity than the commercial Ni-Mo/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} catalyst. The HDS activity of the bimetallic oxynitrides ranged from 9-37% with Co-Mo-O-N showing the highest HDS activity among the oxynitrides tested.
