Abstract: It is possible to say that solid acid catalysis involves the largest amounts of catalysts used and the largest economical effort in the oil refining and chemical industry. In this review the author has tried to describe perhaps the most important solid acids based on inorganic oxides, going from their preparation procedures and characterization, to their catalytic activity for a series of hydrocarbon reactions. The review starts with an introductory part in where the nature of the acid sites and their physicochemical characterization is described. Then the classification to the different catalysts is initiated with the older amorphous silica-alumina and aluminum phosphates and followed by catalysts with more interest at present which are discussed in order of increasing acid strength: zeolites, heteropoly acids, and sulfated metal oxides. The aim of this review is to present an extended summary of the state of the art and the current and the future tendencies in the field. 720 refs.
TL;DR: A series of activated carbons with different degrees of activation were oxidized with H2O2, (NH4)2S2O8 and HNO3 in order to introduce different oxygen surface complexes as discussed by the authors.
TL;DR: In this article, the surface properties of high surface area ceria samples, either in the reduced or unreduced state, have been investigated using FT-IR spectroscopy.
TL;DR: In this article, a review summarizes recent advances in the hydrolysis of cellulose by different types of solid acids, such as sulfonated carbonaceous based acids, polymer based acids and magnetic solid acids.
TL;DR: In this paper, a scale of acidity and an evaluation of the relative acid strength at different temperatures (373 −773 K) were obtained for both Bronsted and Lewis-acid sites.
Abstract: Pyridine and ammonia have been used as probe molecules for the quantitative analysis of surface acidity of some solid catalysts by FTIR spectroscopy. For pyridine, a scale of acidity and an evaluation of the relative acid strength at different temperatures (373–773 K) were obtained for both Bronsted- and Lewis-acid sites. Correlation was verified between the concentration of Bronsted sites and the catalytic activity of the catalysts examined for the dehydration of 2-(2-hydroxyethyl)pyridine to 2-vinylpyridine. In contrast, ammonia was a much less reliable probe, mainly due to the overlapping of the resulting IR absorption bands. Moreover, it decomposed even at rather low temperatures, when adsorbed onto the catalysts.
