Hydrodesulphurization (HDS) catalysts were newly prepared by water-assisted spreading of CoCO3.Co(OH)2 of low solubility in water onto pre-sulphided Mo species supported on several Al2O3 of surface area SBET 77-262 m2g−1, ZrO2 of SBET 108 m2g−1, and TiO2 of SBET 140 m2g−1. The spreading was followed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM-EDX). X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and temperature programmed reduction (H2-TPR) characterized partial re-oxidation of sulphidic Mo catalysts before Co sorption. The prepared catalysts were characterized in sulphidic form by H2-TPR. Activity of catalysts was determined in the HDS reaction of 1-benzothiophene. The spreading of Co onto sulphidic catalysts led to systematic increase of HDS activity by 16–86% in comparison to the spreading of Co onto oxide samples. View Full-Text
