High temperature catalytic oxidation of nitrogen containing compounds has great importance for the analysis of environmental and industrial samples and the control of emissions of waste incineration facilities.The complete oxidation of nitrogen in different functional groups to NO and NO2is a crucial step for the determination of nitrogen in samples and NOxabatement[1,2]. Altough platinum group metals have excellent oxidation activity, they are expensive and easily poisoned by the presence of S, Cl and P containing organic substances. Therefore, there is a great interest to develop new active, selective and resistant catalyst to treat waste oxidation gases. In this study, the activities of CuO/ Al2O3, CuO-CeO2/ Al2O3and Pt/ Al2O3catalysts for total oxidation of nitrogen containing compounds were analyzed. The catalyst samples were prepared to obtain a loading of 10% Cu, 3%Cu-7%Ce, 1% Pt over the Al2O3as a suppport by impregnation method. Characterization of the catalyst samples was performed by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and BET. EDTA, urea, potassium nitrate, ammonium chloride, thiourea, pyridine, glycine, yeast extract, metylaminewere selected as model components representing various nitrogen containing functional groups. The experiments were performed in a quartz tubular reactor in two zone furnace and the sample first oxidized at 700-850 oC under air flow of 200 ml/min and the cataytic oxidation was performed at 500oC in second zone, gas stream passed over catalytic bed. The catalytic activities of the samples were investigated with mass spectrometry by analyzing combustion products. In table 1, BET surface area values of the catalysts samples are given. It is seen that the surface area changes significantly when impregnating cerium and copper on Al2O3.

Sevinç, Alper; Karakaş, Gürkan; Department of Chemical Engineering (2017)
High temperature catalytic oxidation (HTCO) of nitrogen containing compounds has great importance with regard to determination of the nitrogen in the environmental and industrial samples. The complete oxidation of bound nitrogen in different functional groups, ammonia, nitrates and organic nitrogen to nitric oxide is a crucial step for the determination of nitrogen in samples. The main goal of this work is catalyst screening for the complete oxidation of total bound nitrogen in the nitrogen containing compo...
Catalytic oxidation of nitrogen containing compounds for nitrogen determination
Karakaş, Gürkan (2019-02-15)
The high temperature catalytic oxidation (HTCO) performance of Al2O3 supported Pt, Cu, Cu-Ce and Fe catalysts were systematically studied with a perspective of selective oxidation of nitrogenous compounds to nitric oxide for quantitative determination of bound nitrogen. The catalyst samples were prepared via impregnation and characterized by XRD and BET. In addition, temperature programmed reaction experiments with acetonitrile and oxygen were conducted to evaluate the catalytic activity and selectivity tow...

Öktem, Hüseyin Avni; EYİDOĞAN, FÜSUN; Bayrac, Ceren; Yilmaz, Remziye (2012-04-01)
Laccase (E.C., p-benzenediol: oxygen oxidoreductase) catalyzes the oxidation of various aromatic compounds, particularly phenols, which are organic pollutants, present in wastewater. With this specific function this enzyme has had a great impact on the development of biosensors for both environmentally important pollutants and clinically relevant metabolites. There are different detection procedures such as chromatographic and spectrophotometric methods to detect the presence of phenolic compounds i...
Kinetics of H2S sorbtion on manganese oxide and Mn-Fe-Cu mixed oxide prepared by the Complexation Technique
Caglayan, P; Yasyerli, S; Ar, I; Dogu, G; Doğu, Timur (2006-04-02)
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 ...

Selçuk Yüce, Nihal; Soner, I.; Selçuk, Emre (Thomas Telford Ltd., 2010-04-01)
Fluidised bed combustion (FBC) ashes containing a significant amount of free calcium oxide and calcium sulfate in addition to valuable inorganic acidic oxide ingredients such as silicon oxide, ferric oxide and aluminium oxide can be utilised as potential raw materials in the production of non-expansive belite-rich calcium sulfoaluminate cement, which is one of the special cement types having performance characteristics similar to those of ordinary Portland cement in addition to having lower energy requireme...
