Abstract

In this work, a series of NixMn1−xTi10 (x = 0.0–0.5) catalysts were synthesized using a one-pot sol–gel method for selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of NO with NH3. The effects of Ni doping on the catalytic activity and SO2 resistance were investigated by XRD, TEM-EDS, XPS, NH3-TPD, H2-TPR, SO2-TPD and in situ DRIFTS. It is found that the higher the amounts of surface Mn4+ and Oα species existing on the catalyst surface, the greater the oxidation ability that they present for NO and NH3, which results in better activity at low temperature and worse selectivity to N2 at high temperature due to the overoxidation of NH3. Among NixMn1−xTi10 (x = 0.0–0.5), the Ni0.4Mn0.6Ti10 catalyst exhibited excellent NH3-SCR activity, a wide temperature window (190–360 °C) and good H2O and SO2 durability even in the presence of 100 ppm SO2 and 15% H2O under a GHSV of 40 000 h−1, which is very competitive for the practical application in controlling the NOx emission from stationary sources. It is concluded that more surface Lewis acid sites and the appropriate contents of surface active Mn4+ and surface oxygen species on the surface of Ni0.4Mn0.6Ti10 play key roles in the special SCR performance due to the interactions among Mn, Ni and Ti oxides. The SO2-TPD and in situ DRIFTS results confirm the reason for the good SO2 resistance of the Ni0.4Mn0.6Ti10 catalyst. Moreover, in situ DRIFTS results reveal that the NH3-SCR reaction over Ni0.4Mn0.6Ti10 mainly follows the Eley–Rideal (E–R)-type mechanism.
