Considering the importance of high-temperature removal of H2S from industrial gases, sorption studies were carried out on copper oxide and Cu-V and Cu-Mo mixed oxides in the absence and presence of hydrogen in a fixed-bed reactor. Experiments were carried out in a wide temperature range between 300 and 700 degreesC. A significant amount of SO2 was produced with CuO sorbent in the absence of hydrogen. In the case of mixed oxide sorbents, SO2 formation was detected even in the presence of hydrogen. On the basis of the experimental concentration profiles of H2S, SO2, and H2O measured in the reactor effluent and XRD results for the solid products, reaction sequences were proposed in reducing (in hydrogen) and nonreducing atmospheres. A deactivation model proposed for such noncatalytic gas-solid reactions gave excellent predictions of the H2S breakthrough curves. Sorption rate parameters obtained in the absence of hydrogen were found to be larger than the corresponding values in the presence of hydrogen. Partial reduction of CuO prior to the sorption of H2S in the presence of hydrogen is the major reason for this observation.

Hydrogen sulfide sorption activities of manganese oxide and Mn-Fe-Cu mixed oxide sorbents were examined in a fixed bed reactor. Sulfur retention capacity of Mn-O sorbent was found to be quite high at 600 degrees C both in the absence and presence of hydrogen gas (0.17 and 0.14 g S/g sorbent, respectively). This sorbent has a high porosity and a relatively high surface area. Best regeneration temperature of this sorbent was found as 700 degrees C, with a gas stream containing 6% oxygen in nitrogen. Mn-Fe-Cu ...
Mechanism Studies on CVD of Boron Carbide from a Gas Mixture of BCl3, CH4, and H-2 in a Dual Impinging-jet Reactor
Karaman, Mustafa; Sezgi, Naime Aslı; Doğu, Timur; Ozbelge, Hilmi Onder (2009-03-01)
Nearly pure boron carbide free from impurities was produced on a tungsten substrate in a dual impinging-jet chemical vapor deposition reactor from a BCl3, CH4, and H-2 mixture. The Fourier Tran form Infrared (FTIR) analysis proved the formation Of reaction intermediate BHCl2, which is proposed to occur mainly in the gaseous boundary layer next to the substrate surface. Among a large number of reaction mechanisms proposed only the ones considering the molecular adsorption of boron carbide on the substrate su...
Catalytic effects of metallic additives on the combustion properties of crude oils by thermal analysis techniques
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2001-08-20)
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) was applied to crude oil combustion in the presence and absence of metal chlorides. It was observed that in the presence of smaller ratios of metallic additives, the surface reactions were predominant and the catalyst did not affect the reactions much. Three reaction regions were identified as low temperature oxidation (LTO), middle temperature oxidation (MTO) and high temperature oxidation (HTO). Kinetic parameters of the reaction regions were determined with two dif...
Selective oxidation of H2S to elemental sulfur over Ce-V mixed oxide and CeO2 catalysts prepared by the complexation technique
Yasyerli, Sena; Dogu, Gulsen; Doğu, Timur (2006-09-30)
Selective oxidation of H2S to elemental sulfur was investigated in a fixed bed reactor using Ce-V mixed oxides and cerium oxide (CeO2) catalytic materials prepared by the complexation technique. The Ce-V mixed oxide with a V/Ce atomic ratio of one and with the CeVO4 crystal structure gave very high sulfur selectivity values (close to one) at almost complete conversion of H2S, for O-2/H2S mote ratios close to 0.5. Best operation temperature was found as 250 degrees C with this catalyst. CeO2 gave lower selec...
Investigation of copolymers of thiophene-functionalized polystyrene with pyrrole by pyrolysis mass spectrometry
Papila, Ozge; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2006-06-01)
The thermal and structural characterization of electrochemically synthesized thiophene-functionalized polystyrene and pyrrole (PS/PPy) and their copolymers were investigated by direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. The pyrolysis data confirmed the growth of polypyrrole onto the pendant thiophene moiety of polystyrene. It is determined that the electrolytic film has different properties from the mechanical mixture and the related homopolymers.
