Reactive Adsorption of Sulfur Compounds from FCC Gasoline on NiO/γ-Al2O3
NiO/γ-Al2O3 adsorbent was prepared by wet impregnated method. XRD, SEM-EDS, nitrogen adsorption techniques were used to characterize the adsorbents and GC-FPD was utilized to analyze the composition of gasoline before and after reaction. X-ray diffraction patterns indicate that noncrystal NiO particles are supported on the surface of γ-Al2O3. The results show that NiO/γ-Al2O3 adsorbent could be used to remove sulfur compounds and is effective on removing benzothiophene (BT). The maximum desulfurization efficiency appears when NiO content reaches 16%, and the total sulfur adsorption capacity is 1.84mg/g, however for 16%Ni/γ-Al2O3 the value reaches 3.495mg/g.
