Synthesis and Characterization of the Catalysts 5 wt.% and 10 wt.% Co/SBA-15
Catalysts supported on SBA-15 were obtained by wet impregnation using aqueous solution of cobalt nitrate, where different contents of cobalt (5 wt% and 10 wt%) were prepared. The molecular sieve SBA-15 was synthesized using tetra ethyl ortho silicate (TEOS) as silicate source, and triblock copolymer, poly-(ethylene oxide)-poly (propylene oxide)-poly-(ethylene oxide) PEO-PPO-PEO as the organic structure directing agent. These materials were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray energy dispersion spectrophotometer (EDX) and Nitrogen adsorption–desorption isotherms (BET). The results from the XRD showed that the molecular sieve mesoporous (SBA-15) was identified by X-ray diffraction, especially from the (210) and (300) peaks, which represent a typical spectrum for the SBA-15. Characterization of catalysts by Nitrogen adsorption–desorption isotherms (BET) made it possible to verify the the samples had been of type IV with hysteresis of corresponding the H2 type the porous materials.
