Abstract  

The dehydration of a series of VPI-5 and H3 samples, synthesized under various conditions, as well as the solid state transformation of VPI-5 to AlPO4-8 have been investigated using combined TG-DTG-DSC and high-resolution solid state31P-NMR. The TG curves show a quasi-continuous release of water, the total loss being characteristic for each sample. Complete dehydration is achieved when the samples are heated from 20°C to about 150°C at various beating rates. Besides the main dehydration effect, several weak endothermic peaks are observed. These generally non-reproducible modulated peaks, recorded at high heating rates, are presumably due to the interactions of the water molecules leaving the channels of VPI-5 with the randomly positioned fragments stemming from the destruction of the water triple helix assemblage. The non-isothermal kinetic parameters of the dehydration have been evaluated from the TG and DTG curves recorded at low heating rates.

The thermal decompositions in vacuum of the compounds ZnCrO4, ZnCrO4·3.5 Zn(OH)2·H2O and CuCrO4 have been investigated using a combination of various techniques: TG, EPR, IR and X-ray.

The formation of some catalytically active Cr(V) and Cr(III) species is studied when the progressive thermal reduction of zinc chromate is enhanced by the addition of solid zinc oxalate, the reducing agent CO being formed in situ, during thermal analysis.

Abstract  

Nanometric Fe2O3 particles could be inserted inside the internal pore volume of SBA-15 mesoporous silica and mesoporous alumina supports, when Fe(III) chelates (EDTA, gluconate or citrate) were used as impregnating precursors. The oxidative degradation of the chelating anions was followed by combined TG-DTA. Strong chelate-SiOH interactions (case of bulky EDTA), favored by the mesopore curvature, yield sub-nanometric extremely well dispersed Fe2O3 particles preferentially located at the micropore mouths (confinement effect). Fe2O3 even more strongly interacts with alumina walls, generating either (Fe,Al)2O3 mixed phases or Fe-aluminate micro domains. These iron-based mesoporous alumina composites proved very active catalysts in total oxidation of phenol at ambient conditions, with extremely low iron leaching (0.2%).
