Abstract

The surface properties of supported gallium oxide catalysts prepared by impregnation of various supports (γ-Al2O3, SiO2, TiO2, ZrO2) were investigated by adsorption microcalorimetry, using ammonia and water as probe molecules. In the case of acidic supports (γ-Al2O3, ZrO2, TiO2), the acidic character of supported gallium catalysts always decreased in comparison with gallium-free supports; on very weakly acidic SiO2, new acidic centers were created when depositing Ga2O3. The addition of gallium oxide decreased the hydrophilic properties of alumina, titania and zirconia, but increased the amount of water adsorbed on silica. The catalytic performances in the selective catalytic reduction of NO by C2H4 in excess oxygen were in the order Ga/Al2O3>Ga/TiO2>Ga/ZrO2≫Ga /SiO2. This order is more related to the quality of the dispersion of Ga2O3 on the support than to the global acidity of the solids.
