  • Patent number: 8877670
    Abstract: Catalysts are disclosed comprising fibrous substrates having silica-containing fibers with diameters generally from about 1 to about 50 microns, which act effectively as “micro cylinders.” Such catalysts can dramatically improve physical surface area, for example per unit length of a reactor or reaction zone. At least a portion of the silica, originally present in the silica-containing fibers of a fibrous material used to form the fibrous substrate, is converted to a zeolite (e.g., having a SiO2/Al2O3 ratio of at least about 150) that remains deposited on these fibers. The fibrous substrates possess important properties, for example in terms of acidity, which are useful in hydroprocessing (e.g., hydrotreating or hydrocracking) applications.

  • Patent number: 8865020
    Abstract: Provided is an adsorbent having superior adsorption properties for use as a dehumidifying agent for desiccant air conditioning which exhibits high adsorption properties at mid and high humidity ranges, and for use as a gas adsorbent of carbon dioxide, ammonia, formaldehyde and the like. A precursor suspension having a Si/Al ratio of 0.70 to 1.0 is prepared, and the precursor suspension is subsequently heated at 110° C. or higher for 2 days to synthesize a complex of a layered low-crystalline clay mineral and an amorphous aluminum silicate. The obtained complex of the layered low-crystalline clay mineral and the amorphous aluminum silicate yields excellent water vapor adsorption performance of 45 wt % or more at a relative humidity of 60%, and therefore can be used as an adsorbent for desiccant air conditioning.

  • Patent number: 8846559
    Abstract: A catalyst and method of forming a catalyst for use in aromatic alkylation involves treating a zeolite, which may be a ZSM-5 zeolite, with a phosphorus-containing compound. The phosphorus-treated zeolite is combined with a binder material. The bound phosphorus-treated zeolite is treated with an aqueous solution of a hydrogenating metal compound by contacting the bound phosphorus-treated zeolite with the aqueous solution and separating the aqueous solution from the bound phosphorus-treated zeolite to form a hydrogenating-metal-containing zeolite catalyst. The catalyst may be used in preparing an alkyl aromatic product by contacting a hydrogenating-metal-containing zeolite catalyst with an aromatic alkylation feed of an aromatic compound and an alkylating agent under reaction conditions suitable for aromatic alkylation.
