Characterization of ZSM-5 during conversion of glucose to levulinic acid
- 能源院－会议论文 
The effects of catalyst amount on the yields of levulinic and hydroxymethyl furfural were investigated during conversion of glucose to levulinic acid catalyzed by ZSM-5. XRD and XPS were used to analyse the characteristics of ZSM-5 before reaction and after reaction. The results showed that: ZSM-5 exhibited good catalytic activity in the reaction of hydrolysis of glucose to produce levulinic acid. The characteristic peak of ZSM-5 molecular sieve did not change after reaction compared to that of before reaction. The relative crystallinity of ZSM-5 decreased after reaction, which caused the catalytic activity decline. The surface O, Si and Al content of ZSM-5 decreased greatly. The increase of element C was the main reason of inactivation of catalyst. ? (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
