Effect of the ceria–alumina composite support on the Mo-based catalyst’s sulfur-resistant activity for the synthetic natural gas process

Ceria–alumina composite supports were prepared by the co-precipitation (cop), impregnation (imp) or deposition–precipitation (dp) methods. Co–Mo catalysts supported on these composite supports were prepared by the imp method and their catalytic activities for sulfur-resistant methanation of synthesis gas were investigated. The catalysts were characterized by nitrogen adsorption, X-ray diffraction (XRD), and hydrogen temperature-programmed reduction (TPR). It was found that the preparation method of ceria–alumina composite support had a marked influence on the surface area, the interaction between ceria and alumina, and the catalytic performance for sulfur-resistant methanation. Among them, the ceria–alumina composite support prepared by dp method achieves the best methanation activity due to its smaller ceria particle size, better ceria dispersion, weak interaction between ceria–alumina as suggested by XRD and TPR results.
