NH_3-TPD and pyridine adsorption IR spectroscopy techniques have been used to study the zinc states in ZnHZSM-5 zeolite containing various zine content. The results indicate that, in addition to two desorption peaks for HZSM-5 zeolite located at about 533 and 733 K, two new peaks located at about 573 and 873 K were observed. These new peaks are believed to be associated with two kinds of zinc sites designated by L_1, L_2. The adsorbed ammonia amount of L_2 corresponds to the amount of L_(1616) acid characterized by pyridine adsorption IR spectra for ZnHZSM-5 zeolite with various zinc contents. It is possible that there are two kinds of zinc states in ZnHZSM-5 zeolite. One kind of them is ZnO species with weak acidity, the other is ZnOH~+ species with strong acidity which can promote the activity and has an effect on stability of activity for aromatization of propane.
