Hydrogenation of aromatic hydrocarbons in a mixture with thiophene on sulfided Pd/Al2O3 catalysts

Full Articles


The activity and stability of aluminum-palladium catalysts in the hydrogenation of aromatic hydrocarbons mixed with thiophene were studied. The catalysts were obtained by impregnation of γ-A2O3 with aqueous solutions of salts of palladium complexes. Preliminary sulfiding followed by oxidative activation of Pd/Al2O3 catalysts were found to favor the formation of such palladium state on the surface at which the hydrogenation of aromatic hydrocarbons in the presence of sulfur-containing impurities proceeds without a noticeable change in the activity with time. IR spectroscopy showed that the palladium metal surface fragments forming CO complexes with a characteristic absorption band at 1998 cm–1 are resistant to poisoning with sulfur-containing compounds in the hydrogenation of aromatic hydrocarbons.
