Abstract:

The effect of phosphorus on Mo2C supported on γ-Al2O3and activated carbon was studied. The catalysts were characterized by \{CO\} chemisorption, \{BET\} surface area measurements, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and near-edge X-ray absorption fine structure, and tested for their reactivity for hydroprocessing reactions, particularly hydrogenation, hydrodesulfurization (HDS) and hydrodenitrogenation (HDN), using model liquid compounds. The P-containing catalysts had higher reactivity for \{HDN\} than those without P. \{HDS\} was higher when the Mo2C was synthesized on γ-Al2O3previously treated with P than when the Mo component and P were added together on γ-Al2O3. Postreaction characterization indicates that the catalysts were tolerant of sulfur.
