ABSTRACT
Alumina-supported metal oxide catalysts of Cr, Co, Ru, Cu, V, Ni, Mn and Ce were prepared and evaluated in their comparative catalytic activities in the oxidative decomposition reaction of trichloroethylene (TCE) in air. The highest catalytic activity was observed for the CKVAI2O3 catalyst. Catalytic activity promotion was found to exist for the Cr-based catalysts containing Ce, Mn or Ru as a promoter. The binary component catalytic systems of Ce-Cr, Mn-Cr and Ru-Cr were optimized in their metal compositions to get the highest activity in the TCE decomposition reaction. Ru(0.4 wt%)Cr(9.6 wt%)/Al203 catalyst showed the highest activity with the increased reaction rate 2.1 times higher than the Cr(10 wt%)/Al203 catalyst. Catalytic activities of the CrCX-based catalysts were discussed in relation with the redox properties and acidities which were determined by temperature programmed reduction (TPR) and temperature programmed desorption of NH3 (NH3-TPD), respectively.
