Porous Mn-Cu and Mn-Cu-V mixed-oxide sorbents prepared by the complexation technique were tested for high-temperature removal of H2S in the presence of hydrogen gas. Sorption experiments carried out at 627 T in a fixed-bed reactor showed higher reactivity and also higher sulfur retention capacity (over 0.15 g of S/g of sorbent) for the Mn-Cu mixed oxide than for the Mn-Cu-V mixed oxide. Successive sulfidation-regeneration cycles demonstrated that the MnCu mixed oxide was also more stable than Mn-Cu-V, maintaining its activity and about 90% of its sulfur retention capacity at the end of five cycles. Although formation of some MnSO4 was observed during regeneration at 700 T with a gas mixture containing 6% oxygen in nitrogen, this did not cause significant reduction in the activity of this mixed-oxide sorbent. It was also shown that a previously proposed deactivation model gave good predictions of the experimental breakthrough curves obtained with these sorbents.

In this study, supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO(2)) deposition was used to prepare vulcan-supported Pt (Pt/Vulcan) electrocatalysts for proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs), and the effects of process variables on the properties of the electrocatalysts were investigated. The two different methods used to reduce the organometallic precursor were thermal reduction in nitrogen at atmospheric pressure and thermal reduction in scCO(2). In the former method, the maximum Pt loading achieved was 9%, and t...

Zinc borate was prepared from the reaction of zinc oxide and boric acid in the absence or presence of cumene terminated poly(styrene-co-maleic anhydride), PSMA, added as a surfactant at varying concentrations (0.1-1 wt.% of water) to the reaction medium to investigate its effect on the growth and agglomeration of particles during reaction. Synthesized zinc borates were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) in comparison to unmodifie...
Enhancement of biodegradability by continuous ozonation in Acid Red-151 solutions and kinetic modeling
Gokcen, F; Ozbelge, TA (Elsevier BV, 2005-11-15)
In this work, continuous ozonation of aqueous Acid Red-151 was performed in a stirred tank reactor at neutral pH and 25 degrees C. The results show that ozonation is capable of a rapid conversion of the Acid Red-151 dye molecule to more biodegradable intermediates up to the ozonation time of 120 min at which the optimum BOD5/COD ratio is obtained. The peak BOD5/COD ratios were found to be in the range of 0.028-0.35 for the initial dye concentrations being in the range of 1000-100 mg/L, respectively.
Dynamic analysis of removal and selective oxidation of H2S to elemental sulfur over Cu-V and Cu-V-Mo mixed oxides in a fixed bed reactor
Yasyerli, S; Dogu, G; Ar, I; Doğu, Timur (Elsevier BV, 2004-10-01)
Selective oxidation of H2S to elemental sulfur was studied using the Cu-V and Cu-V-Mo mixed oxide catalysts with different O-2/H2S ratios between 0 and 3. High activities and high sulfur selectivities reaching 0.98 were obtained with the Cu-V catalyst. The Cu-V-Mo mixed oxide catalyst showed higher activity with a somewhat less selectivity. The Cu-V catalyst, which was originally in the form of alpha-Cu2V2O7, was converted to Cu3VS4, CuS and VOx during the initial stages of reaction. Oxidized form of the ca...
Simultaneous production of tert-Amyl ethyl ether and tert-Amyl alcohol from isoamylene-ethanol-water mixtures in a batch-reactive distillation column
Varisli, D; Doğu, Timur (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2005-07-06)
tert-Amyl ethyl ether (TAEE) and tert-amyl alcohol (TAA), which are the attractive alternatives to methyl tert-butyl ether as octane-enhancing gasoline-blending components, are produced by the simultaneous etherification and hydration of 2-methyl-2-butene (2M2B) in a batch-reactive distillation column. It was shown that, by changing the reboiler temperature in the range of 90-124 degrees C, significant increases of the overall fractional conversion of 2M2B, reaching values of 0.99, were achieved in this sys...
