【摘要】：Y-Modified USY was prepared by ion exchange of USY slurry with 0.01 mol·L-1 Y(NO3)3. Phosphotungstic acid (HPW) catalyst supported on USY and Y-USY was prepared by an impregnation method. The materials were characterized by NH3-TPD, XRD, and N2 adsorption. The activity for the removal of thiophene was examined in a three-necked flask. The sulfur content of model compound was tested on WK-2D microcoulometric detector. The effect of yttrium and HPW content, reaction temperature and catalysts, activation temperature on the activity of catalysts were investigated. It was shown that the oxidation activity of thiophene decreased with the increase of Y content except for the catalyst of Y 5%. HPW content had limit influence on activity of catalysts. The optimal reaction temperature and activation temperature were 40 and 320 ℃, respectively.
