Oxygen Radicals Occlusion/Release Behavior of Nanoporous Aluminosilicate, Ca12Al14-XSiXO33+0.5X (0≦X≦4)
Oxygen radicals occlusion / release behavior of nanoporous aluminosilicate, Ca12Al14-XSiXO33+0.5X (0≦X≦4), synthesized under different condition was examined by the temperature programmed reduction (TPR) in an atmosphere of hydrogen in the temperature range of 200-1000°C and temperature programmed oxidation (TPO) measurement at 800°C. From the TPR results of Ca12Al14O33 (X=0) and Ca12Al10Si4O35 (X=4), it was found that there were three oxygen release peaks, denoted as α, β and γ, on each sample and the peaks appeared in the temperature range 300-420°C, 420-600°C, and 600-750°C, respectively. The oxygen contents of α and γ of samples were almost the same. However, the oxygen content of β in the sample with x = 4 was much larger, almost double, compared to that in x = 0. From the TPR, TPO results and catalytic performance, it was concluded that the oxygen content of β peak strongly influenced the catalytic activity of the nanoporous aluminosilicate in the propylene combustion.
