The Role of Ozone in the Reaction Mechanism of a Bare Zeolite-Plasma Hybrid System
AbstractWe investigated the reaction mechanism of a metal-unloaded zeolite-plasma hybrid system for decomposition of toluene at room temperature. Short-lived radicals and fast electrons did not contribute substantially to the reaction mechanism of toluene decomposition in the zeolite-plasma hybrid system. The main factor enhancing the reaction mechanism was gas-phase O3 directly reacting with toluene adsorbed onto the zeolite (the Eley-Rideal mechanism). CO2 selectivity was not improved by using H-Y zeolite due to its low ability to retain the active oxygen species formed by O3. The gas-phase O3 reacted with adsorbed toluene to form a ring cleavage intermediate that was slowly converted into formic acid. The decomposition rate of formic acid was much lower than that of toluene on the H-Y surface. View Full-Text
