Abstract

The industrial technology, hydrodesulfurization (HDS) is incapable to meet ultra-low sulfur standard due to the limited treatment on organosulfur compound in diesel fuel. In this paper, catalytic oxidative desulfurization of thiophene, dibenzothiophene and 4,6-dimethyldibenzothiophene using molybdenum oxide based catalyst was investigated. A detailed parametric experimental study; number of coating, calcination temperature, addition of dopant was performed on sulfur removal. It was shown that 4.35% WO3/16.52% MoO3/γ-Al2O3 , calcined at 500°C was successfully removed 92.5% of thiophene, 100% of DBT and 100% of 4,6-DMDBT in model diesel at short reaction time and lower temperature.
