CHARRY, Iran David; GONZALEZ, Lina María y MONTES DE CORREA, Consuelo. Characterization by temperature programmed techniques of spent and acid treated vanadium catalysts. Rev.fac.ing.univ. Antioquia [online]. 2011, n.57, pp. 31-37. ISSN 0120-6230.
Spent samples of V2O5/SiO2-γAl2O3 catalyst used for H2SO4 production were acid treated to recover vanadium. Fresh, spent, and acid treated samples were characterized by temperature-programmed techniques: TPR-H2, TPO-O2, TPD-NH3 and, TGA-DTA in order to determine the effect of deactivating species on vanadium recovery. DRX and UV-Vis techniques were used to confirm several signals from the temperature-programmed profiles. The results suggest that vanadium sulfovanadates and oxides in treated samples strongly interact with the support making it difficult to get more than 86% vanadium recovery.
