Dehydroisomerization of α-pinene over metal supported Si-SBA-15 mesoporous molecular sieves
2013 (English)Conference proceedings (editor) (Refereed)
The effective dispersion of active metal species on mesoporous Si-SBA-15 is acquired by means of deposition-precipitation method. In order to achieve this, the surface of Si-SBA-15 was first modified with TiO2 via grafting method, followed by deposition-precipitation method (DP) to obtain a fine dispersion of metallic nanoparticles over TiO2 modified Si-SBA-15. The structural features of the synthesized materials were characterized by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD), nitrogen sorption (BET), XPS and HR-TEM. A valuable platform chemical, p-cymene, was produced over the prepared catalyst by dehydroisomerization of α-pinene under vapour-phase conditions. A stable catalyst for one-spot synthesis of renewable p-cymene from α-pinene was developed.
