Publication costs assisted by the Tokyo Institute of Technology Formation of SO2-radicals over various zeolites and alumina has been confirmed using an esr technique.In the case of NH4Y, the number of radicals is maximum at the adsorption temperature of 200°, and two types of SO2-radicals are observed. One gives an esr signal with g) = 2.008 and gj_ = 2.002, is unstable over 300°, undergoes a collisional broadening in the presence of oxygen at room temperature, and reacts with oxygen at 200°. The other gives an esr signal with g|| = 2.010 and g± = 2.002, is stable up to 500°, and does not interact with oxygen. It is concluded that the adsorption sites for the former are located in the supercage and that those for the latter are located in the sodalite unit. The effect of the calcination temperature on radical formation indicates that adsorption sites for SO2-radicals are formed as a result of deamination and dehydroxylation of NH4Y. The presence of preadsorbed SO2-radicals enhances the formation of O2-radicals on decationated zeolites.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
