Title
Gas phase hydrogenation of ortho-chloronitrobenzene (O-CNB) to ortho-chloroaniline (O-CAN) over unpromoted and alkali metal promoted-alumina supported palladium catalysts
Abstract

A series of alkali metals (Li, Na, K and Cs) promoted alumina-supported palladium catalysts were prepared by a wet impregnation method and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and CO chemisorption measurements. The samples were tested for the gas phase hydrogenation of ortho-chloronitrobenzene (O-CNB) to ortho-chloroaniline (O-CAN) in a fixed-bed micro reactor at 250 °C under normal atmospheric pressure. The promoted-Pd/Al2O3 catalysts show higher conversion for O-CNB and the hydrogenation activity of O-CNB per site decreases with the increasing ionic radius of the alkali metal promoter ions. However, the selectivity for O-CAN remains more or less the same in both unpromoted and promoted catalysts and also irrespective of the nature of the alkali metal promoter ions used for promotion of alumina support. Despite, similar activity and selectivity observed between Li- and Na-promoted Pd/Al2O3 catalysts, the Na-promoted showed higher resistance for coke formation than a Li-promoted catalyst. The increase in the intrinsic activity of palladium site on alkali promotion has been attributed to the increase in hydrogenation activity over promoted catalysts.
