Near-Graphite Coke Deposit on Nano-HZSM-5 Aggregates for Methanol to Propylene and Butylene Reaction
AbstractNanocrystal HZSM-5 zeolite aggregates with different SiO2/Al2O3 molar ratios were prepared under low temperature and were used to catalyze the conversion of methanol to propylene and butene. The coke location, coke content, and coke species deposited on HZSM-5 aggregates were investigated. The near-graphite carbon on the external surface of HZSM-5 zeolite (SiO2/Al2O3 molar ratio = 400) was distinguished by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and energy dispersive spectrometer (EDS). The carbon distributions in the micropores and on the external surface of the spent HZSM-5 were revealed by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) results. Coke preferred to deposit in the mircopores of low SiO2/Al2O3 molar ratio samples (200, 300) with relatively uniform Al distribution, while coke also preferred to deposit on the external surface and in the intergranular spaces of high SiO2/Al2O3 molar ratio sample (400) with an obviously poor Al core and rich Al shell.
