Abstract

Several aspects on the preparation of Fe-zeolites are discussed. In contrast to the many studies highlighting the characterisation of the active sites, new approaches for incorporation of Fe are presented.

Full utilization of exchange capacity of zeolites has been achieved by a controlled alkaline treatment of the parent sample. With this method, iron can be fully exchanged by liquid phase ion-exchange on ZSM5 without the formation of inactive Fe-oxides.

The second topic is the-use of a mild oxidant (H2O2, and peroxides in general) to break down strong complexating equilibria during ion-exchange by controlled redox titration of the ligands. Hydrogen peroxide oxidizes effectively chelating groups releasing Fe species at a controlled rate. The method is demonstrated for the preparation of Fe-FER through Ferric-citrate.

The final concept discussed is the detemplating of the zeolite with the simultaneous incorporation of the iron (combined detemplation and ionexchange). This one-pot preparation minimizes the number of steps considerably. To realize this, a strong oxidant is necessary to remove the organic template, and Fe-cations for exchange. Both requirements are met with the Fenton's-chemistry (Fe3+/2+/H2O2 mixtures) involving radical chemistry. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
