Catalytic role of vanadium(V) sulfate on activated carbon for SO2 oxidation and NH3-SCR of NO at low temperatures
•Catalyst with V2O3(SO4)2 as active component was prepared and characterized.•Catalytic role of V2O3(SO4)2 on AC for SO2 oxidation and NH3-SCR of NO was found.•Transformation of V2O5 to V2O3(SO4)2 during SO2 oxidation on V2O5/AC was proposed.
Carbon-supported catalyst with vanadium(V) sulfate (V2O3(SO4)2) as active component was prepared, characterized and tested for SO2 and NO catalytic removal. Result shows that this catalyst is very active towards SO2 oxidation and selective catalytic reduction of NO with NH3 in the low temperature range of 100–250 °C.
