Abstract In this work, the modified Mn-based NH3-SCR (NH3 low-temperature selective catalytic reduction) catalysts with excellent NO conversion and N2 selectivity be designed. N2 yield was hardly more than 75 % over MnOx/TiO2 for NH3-SCR reaction, whereas the NH3-SCR performance has been significantly improved by using 50 wt.% HPW (H3PW12O40)-MnOx/TiO2. 100 % NO conversion and more than 95 % N2 yield was obtained in wide operating temperature window (150–400°C), suggesting that the addition of HPW could effectively improve the NO reduction conversion. After that, the catalysts were further characterized by XRD, H2-TPR, XPS and in situ DRIFT. DRIFT analysis implied that the introduction of HPW significantly improve the capacity of NH4 + species adsorbed on Brønsted acid sites accompanied with inhibiting the formation and consumption of nitrite species. It proved that the non-selective catalytic reduction reaction over HPW-MnOx/TiO2 catalysts are restrained. HPW could accelerate the formation and consumption of NH4 + species adsorbed on Brønsted acid sites with deactivation of nitrate species. In addition, NH3(ad) could be hardly oxidized to NH species and then reacted with nitrate species (L-H mechanism) and gaseous NO (E-R mechanism). More importantly, the oxidation of NH3 was also suppressed, which plays a dominate role to form N2O above 300°C. Besides, the deactivation of potassium poisoning on the SCR activity significantly weakened for modified samples compared to parent catalyst.

The aim of the present paper is to study the speciation and the role of different active site types (copper species and Brønsted acid sites) in the direct synthesis of furan from furfural catalyzed by copper-exchanged FAU31 zeolite. Four series of samples were prepared by using different conditions of post-synthesis treatment, which exhibit none, one or two types of active sites. The catalysts were characterized by XRD, low-temperature sorption of nitrogen, SEM, H2-TPR, NMR and by means of IR spectroscopy with ammonia and CO sorption as probe molecules to assess the types of active sites. All catalyst underwent catalytic tests. The performed experiments allowed to propose the relation between the kind of active centers (Cu or Brønsted acid sites) and the type of detected products (2-metylfuran and furan) obtained in the studied reaction. It was found that the production of 2-methylfuran (in trace amounts) is determined by the presence of the redox-type centers, while the protonic acid sites are mainly responsible for the furan production and catalytic activity in the whole temperature range. All studied catalysts revealed very high susceptibility to coking due to polymerization of furfural.
