Bimetallic Pd–Cu/ZnO–Al2O3 and Pd–Cu/ZrO2–Al2O3 catalysts for methanol synthesis
Monometallic copper and bimetallic palladium-copper catalysts supported on ZnO–Al2O3 and ZrO2–Al2O3 were prepared by conventional impregnation method and tested in methanol synthesis reaction under elevated pressure (3.5 MPa) in gradientless reactor at 220°C. The physicochemical properties of prepared catalytic systems were studied using BET, X-ray, TPR-H2, TPD-NH3 techniques. The promotion effect of palladium on catalytic activity and selectivity of copper supported catalyst in methanol synthesis reaction was proven. The highest activity of this system is explained by the Pd–Cu alloy formation.
