Oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane with oxygen catalyzed by K–Y zeolite supported first-row transition metals

Abstract

Fe, Co,Ni, andCuoxide loadedK–Yzeoliteswere synthesizedusinga two-stepmethod, inwhich transition metals in the zeolite framework reactedwith the anions in solution to form an insoluble salt which, when calcined, is expected to form an oxide that is anchored to the inner and/or outer zeolite surface(s). The catalytic properties of these zeolites, for the oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane (ODHE) to ethylene were then investigated. An ethylene selectivity of close to 80%, at an ethane conversion of >20% was
