Abstract Of several Mo/H-ZSM-5 catalysts (Mo loading = 1, 3, 5, 7 wt%), 5Mo/H-ZSM-5 (5 wt%) exhibited the best catalytic performance for methane conversion and benzene yield for methane dehydroaromatization at 700 °C. It was observed that deactivation of zeolite acid sites precedes deactivation of the Mo2C sites. Increasing the number of accessible Mo carbide sites with minimizing isolated surface acid sites is required for high benzene selectivity and stability. Under oxidative conditions… CONTINUE READING
