Abstract in another language

Although numerous investigations have been performed to clarify the reaction mechanism of NH3-SCR over well-established zeolite catalysts, the role of proton transport, which is an elementary and crucial step in NH3-SCR, is not well understood and sometimes even ignored. Here, we performed in situ IS-DRIFTS (simultaneous impedance and diffuse reflection infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy) studies on highly comparable zeolites Fe-ZSM-5 and Cu-ZSM-5 (with the Cu or Fe species predominantly in isolated state) as catalysts under SCR-related conditions. Thereby we revealed for the first time the significantly different influence of Fe and Cu cations on the proton transport in ZSM-5 zeolite catalyst.


In summary, by means of IS-DRIFTS, we revealed that the proton transport in Fe-ZSM-5 depends on the amount of NH3-related surface species (i.e. NH4+ and weakly bound NH3 species), and the proton transport in Cu-ZSM-5 is dominated by the NH4NO3 intermediate resulting from the interaction between NH4+ and activated NO on Cu sites. This molecular understanding of proton transport properties thus provides a new perspective on the interpretation of the different NH3-SCR performance of Fe-ZSM-5 and Cu-ZSM-5 zeolites at low temperatures.
