Title
Influence of solid acid catalyst on DME production directly from synthesis gas over the admixed catalyst of Cu/ZnO/Al2O3 and various SAPO catalysts
Abstract

This study focused on the effect of solid acid catalyst on the catalytic performance in direct DME synthesis. The various SAPO catalysts were prepared to perform methanol dehydration and direct DME synthesis. In methanol dehydration, SAPO-34 and -18 with strong acid sites and showed high initial activity, but deactivated rapidly. This is mainly attributed to the formation of coking materials inside the pore of the catalysts. In contrast, SAPO-5 and -11 with low initial activity showed relatively high catalytic stability. The high stability of both catalysts is due to their mild acid sites and desirable pore architecture. For direct DME synthesis from synthesis gas, various admixed catalyst were prepared with a commercial Cu/ZnO/Al2O3 and the SAPO catalysts. The initial activity of all the catalysts was comparable in the direct DME synthesis with the admixed catalysts, even though those catalysts showed quite different catalytic activity in methanol dehydration. Indeed, admixed SAPO-5 and -11 showed better catalytic stability than the other admixed catalysts. The results indicate that catalytic stability of solid acid is essential factor to determine catalytic performance in the reaction.

Graphical abstractThe various SAPO catalysts were prepared to perform methanol dehydration and direct DME synthesis. In methanol dehydration, the high stability of both catalysts is due to their mild acid sites and desirable pore architecture. In the direct DME synthesis with admixed catalyst, SAPO-5 and -11 with lower catalytic activity in methanol dehydration showed significant catalytic stability. The catalytic stability of solid acid catalyst is crucial factor to enhance the direct DME synthesis performance.Figure optionsDownload full-size imageDownload as PowerPoint slide
