Tailoring Alumina Support with Crystalline AlPO4-5 for Enhancing Hydrodesulfurization Activity

Crystalline AlPO4-5 modified alumina was firstly developed as support for hydrodesulfurization (HDS). It can promote the reducibility of metal oxides, inhibit inactive nickel spinel formation and facilitate more polymeric tungsten species formation, which favors the promotion effect of nickel on tungsten and results in an enhanced activity in HDS of DBT.
