Abstract: A series of Cu-ZSM-5 catalysts with different Cu loadings were prepared by an incipient wetness impregnation method. These catalysts were used for studies of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of NO by NH3. The results showed that Cu-ZSM-5 with 5% Cu loading showed the best catalytic activity, the conversion of NO was more than 80% over the temperature range 198-470 ℃, and the highest NO conversion was 96.5%. The SCR activity was only influenced slightly by the addition of H2O or SO2. Visible diffraction of the CuO phase was observed when the Cu content was above 5%. The results of steady-state kinetics studies indicated that the SCR reaction over Cu-ZSM-5 with 5% Cu loading was zero-order with respect to NH3, first-order with respect to NO, and nearly half-order with respect to O2. The apparent activation energy for the reaction was found to be 47.7 kJ·mol-1.
