Catalysts based on Zeolites supports

BiZeolCat aims to develop new catalysts based on Moderinite Framework Inverted (MFI) zeolites, that are charachterised by a high density of anchoring points for the grafting of active metals (except chromium due its toxicity) to improve the sustainability of the following light alkanes reactions:

  • Propane dehydrogenation in propylene (PDH)
  • Butane and butenes mixtures oxidative dehydrogenation (BODH)
  • Butane and butenes mixtures non-oxidative dehydrogenation (BDH)
  • Alkane (C1 to C4) aromatization

Series 1. Commercial MFI treated to increase the number of mesopores

Glad to show preliminary results for series 1 (figure 1) and series 2 (figure 2)

Three series of different MFI zeolites’ based supports will be developed and used:

  • Series 1. Commercial MFI samples treated to increase the number of anchoring sites
  • Series 2. MFI topology synthesized with Si/Al ratio 1:100 and crystal size approximately 1-3 microns
  • Series 3. MFI topology with stacked nanosheet morphology (2-4 unit cells thickness) and Si/Al ratio around 1 and 50
