Removal of NO(x) at low temperature over mesoporous alpha-Mn2O3 catalyst.


Low-temperature selective catalytic reduction was carried out over various kinds of manganese oxide (MnOx) catalysts. Mesoporous alpha-Mn2O3, commercial bulk Mn2O3, and Mn/SBA-15 were used as the catalyst. The NOx removal performances of the catalysts were compared. Three different amounts of Mn (5, 10, and 15 wt%) were impregnated on SBA-15 to synthesize Mn/SBA-15. The physical and chemical properties of the catalysts were examined by Brunauer-Emmett-Teller, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and H2-temperature programmed reduction analyses. Of all catalysts examined, mesoporous alpha-Mn2O3 exhibited the highest low-temperature SCR de-NOx efficiency, reaching about 90% at 175 degrees C. This is attributed to strong reducing ability and high oxygen mobility of mesoporous alpha-Mn2O3 and well dispersed Mn2O3 in its mesoporous framework.
