Abstract

LaMnO3 and LaMnO3/ZSM-5 nano catalysts were synthesized by Pechini method and their physical-chemical properties were characterized using XRD, FTIR, SEM-EDX, UV-vis DRS, BET surface area and TPR. The correlation between characteristic properties and activity of catalysts were investigated. The catalytic performance of the catalysts was evaluated in combustion of 2-propanol and compared with 1% Pt/Al2O3 performance. The results of SEM and UV-Vis DRS of LaMnO3/ZSM-5 indicated the well dispersion of the perovskite oxide on the support. The results of TPR indicated no direct correlation between the activity and reducibility of the catalysts. The catalytic studies revealed that the supporting of LaMnO3 increased the conversion rate of 2-propanol, which is ascribed to higher surface area, more availability of catalytic sites to probe molecules. In addition, the stability of LaMnO3/ZSM-5 was higher than that of LaMnO3 during a 10 h time on stream. The conversion rate of 2-propanol on the LaMnO3/ZSM-5 was higher even than that on the industrial 1%Pt/Al2O3 catalyst. The study showed that the perovskite/zeolite catalyst could be promising catalysts in the removal of VOCs.
