The poisoning effect of CO2 on a HY catalyst for the dehydration of 2-(2-hydroxyethyl)-pyridine (HEP) to 2-vinylpyridine (VP) has been investigated by FT-IR analysis in the presence and absence of pyridine. CO2 was found to adsorb on sites not occupied by pyridine, i.e. on weak basic sites accompanying the strongly acidic sites, characteristic of Y zeolites in the protonated form. When the basic sites are occupied by preadsorbed CO2, HEP dehydration cannot take place any more through the minor mechanism, involving a couple of acid-base sites, and the reaction proceeds only through the major mechanism, involving a carbocation intermediate, on Bronsted acid sites only.

Abstract

The poisoning effect of CO2 on a HY catalyst for the dehydration of 2-(2-hydroxyethyl)-pyridine (HEP) to 2-vinylpyridine (VP) has been investigated by FT-IR analysis in the presence and absence of pyridine. CO2 was found to adsorb on sites not occupied by pyridine, i.e. on weak basic sites accompanying the strongly acidic sites, characteristic of Y zeolites in the protonated form. When the basic sites are occupied by preadsorbed CO2, HEP dehydration cannot take place any more through the minor mechanism, involving a couple of acid-base sites, and the reaction proceeds only through the major mechanism, involving a carbocation intermediate, on Bronsted acid sites only.
