Highly efficient polyoxometalate-based catalysts for clean-gasoline synthesis
Department of Materials Science and Engineering
Poor selectivity for gasoline products is a critical issue for the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS). Herein, we report that the introduction of a polyoxometalate Cs2.5H0.5PW12O40 (CsPW) into a conventional FTS catalyst (Co/Al2O3) can create a highly efficient bifunctional catalyst, leading to 118% increase in the selectivity of gasoline. Furthermore, it was found that such a significant improvement is due to the effective hydrocracking of heavier hydrocarbon products at CsPW sites.
