The surface acidity of Y-type zeolites (HY and NaY) modified by solid state ion exchange (SSIE) and liquid phase ion exchange were characterized by in situ Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy using pyridine as the probe molecule (Py-FTIR). The adsorption of single probe molecules (thiophene, cyclohexene and benzene) and double probe molecules (thiophene and cyclohexene, thiophene and benzene) compared with sorbents were studied using in situ FTIR spectroscopy. The results indicated that the Brönsted acid (B acid) of HY (L-CeY) is the catalytic center of cyclohexene dimerized alkenyl carbenium ions and thiophene oligomerization, while the Lewis acid (L acid) is the major center of adsorption of thiophene, cyclohexene, and benzene. In addition, there is strong chemisorption and competitive adsorption of cyclohexene and thiophene, which provides evidence for the poor performance of removing sulfur. The S-CeY zeolite has abundant of weak Lewis acid sites. The sorbent is good at absorbing thiophene, while the influence of the competition adsorption of cyclohexene was not predominately. As to NaY zeolite, there is no preference for adsorption of thiophene, cyclohexene and benzene.
