Sulfated ZrO2 Supported on HMS Mesoporous Silica for Catalytic Epoxidation of Soybean Oil

Abstract:

Article Preview

Sulfated zirconia supported on HMS mesoporous silica (SZ-HMS) was prepared and evaluated by catalytic epoxidation of soybean oil. The preparation procedure of SZ-HMS included soaking of HMS with ZrOCl2, and then sulfating with H2SO4. The samples were characterized by IR, XRD, and N2-adsorption. SZ-HMS kept the typical mesoporous crystalline as well as pore structure and exhibited an excellent catalytic performance for the epoxidation of soybean oil. The best catalytic activity, 4.4 of epoxy value, is acquired over the SZ-HMS sample prepared by 0.2 mol/L of ZrOCl2 concentration, 0.75 mol/L of H2SO4 concentration, and 823 K of calcination temperature.
