Title
Catalytic properties of WOx/SBA-15 for vapor-phase Beckmann rearrangement of cyclohexanone oxime
Abstract

WOx/SBA-15 nanocomposite materials with different WOx loadings were prepared by one step hydrothermal synthesis and used in the vapor-phase Beckmann rearrangement of cyclohexanone oxime to ɛ-caprolactam. The catalysts were thoroughly characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), sorption analysis, energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDAX) and Raman spectroscopy. The acidities of the catalysts were estimated by ammonia temperature programmed desorption (NH3-TPD) and Fourier transform infrared studies of adsorbed pyridine (pyridine-FTIR). The optimum temperature for the Beckmann rearrangement was 350 °C. Using WOx/SBA-15(20) under the vapor-phase reaction conditions [temperature = 350 °C, WHSV = 0.6 h−1, oxime concentration = 2.5% (w/w) in MeOH] gave 79% cyclohexanone oxime conversion with 93%, ɛ-caprolactam selectivity. The ɛ-caprolactam selectivity was found to be dependent on temperature and space velocity. A correlation has been made between the rearrangement activity and acidity and the structural properties of the catalysts.
