The Mo Loading Effect on SCR deNOx Performance for V-W-Mo/TiO2 Catalyst


Article Preview

The V(1)-W(4.5)-Mo(x)/TiO2 catalysts was prepared by the incipient dry impregnation method. The catalyst samples were ground and sieved for 0.3~0.6 mm. The NO catalytic efficiency, selectivity against N2O of the catalysts were investigated on a fixed bed reactor under simulated exhaust gas with a typical gas composition. The addition of Mo enhanced the catalytic efficiency of V(1)-W(4.5)-Mo(x)/TiO2 catalysts at low temperature region, while lessened that at high temperature, especially at the temperature above 400 °C. Increasing the loading of Mo from 1.5% w/w to 4.5% w/w advanced the maximum catalytic efficiency from 78% to 99% and enlarged the temperature window of the catalyst. The acceptable NO conversion (>60%) was attained at temperature as low as 240 °C for V(1)-W(4.5)-Mo(7.5)/TiO2 catalyst. The presence of Mo promoted the N2O generation. The V(1)-W(4.5)-Mo(0)/TiO2 catalyst showed higher catalytic selectivity for NO compared to the catalysts loading Mo.
