Title
Effect of carbon and chlorine on the performance of carbon-covered alumina supported Ru catalyst for ammonia synthesis
Abstract

Uniformly carbon-covered alumina (CCA), which was prepared by pyrolysis of sucrose, was used as support of ruthenium catalyst. Carbon did not significantly influence on the ammonia synthesis activities of Ru catalysts by changing their Ru particle sizes or Ru 3d5/2 binding energies. Residual chlorine severely suppressed ammonia synthesis by decreasing the amount of hydrogen with the desorption peak at medium temperatures. Carbon also inhibited the adsorption of this hydrogen species for chlorine-free Ru catalysts, but did not change their activities. On the other hand, carbon can increase the ammonia synthesis activities of containing-chlorine Ru catalysts by decreasing the disadvantageous effect of chlorine on H2 adsorption.

Graphical abstractCarbon did not effect on ammonia synthesis activity by the change in Ru particle size or Ru 3d5/2 binding energy, but decreased the disadvantageous effect of chlorine on H2 adsorption for containing-chlorine Ru catalysts, and thus increased their catalytic activities for ammonia synthesis.Figure optionsDownload full-size imageDownload as PowerPoint slideHighlights► Carbon did not effect on activity by the change in Ru particle size or Eb(Ru 3d5/2). ► Carbon decreased the disadvantageous effect of Cl on H2 adsorption. ► The activities for containing-chlorine samples with increasing carbon content.
