Effect of thermal treatment on adsorption-desorption of ammonia and sulfur dioxide on palygorskite : change of surface acid-alkali properties
Frost, Ray L., Chen, Tianhu, Liu, Haibo , Li, Jinhu, Chen, Dong, Chang, Dongyin, & Kong, Dejun (2011) Effect of thermal treatment on adsorption-desorption of ammonia and sulfur dioxide on palygorskite : change of surface acid-alkali properties. Chemical Engineering Journal, 166(3), pp. 1017-1021.
Thermally activated Palygorskite (Pg) has been found to be a good adsorbent material for ammonia (NH3) and sulfur dioxide (SO2). This research investigated the effect of thermal treatment on pore structure and surface acid-alkali properties of Pg through the adsorption-desorption of NH3 and SO2. The results showed that, up to 200 °C, the adsorption of NH3 on Pg was significantly higher than SO2. This was due to NH3 being adsorbed in the internal surface of Pg and forming hydrogen bonds (H-bonds) with coordinated water. The increase in thermal treatment temp. from 150 to 550 °C, showed a gradual decrease in the no. of surface acid sites, while the no. of surface alk. sites increased from 200 to 400 °C. The change of surface acidity-alk. sites is due to the collapse of internal channels of Pg and desorption of different types of hydroxyls assocd. with the Pg structure.
