The nature of active copper species is well-known to vary with copper loading, i.e., isolated Cu(2+) to bulk CuO. In this work, however, the effect of copper loading on the activity and the selectivity was investigated for the wet oxidation of phenol over CuO(x)/Al(2)O(3) catalysts. The activity and the mineralization selectivity of the catalysts increased with copper loading up to 7wt% and remained almost the same at a higher loading. The optimum copper loading was about 7wt% for the wet… CONTINUE READING
