Abstract

Preparation and characterization of Cr/activated carbon catalyst from palm empty fruit bunch had been done. The research were to determine the effect of carbonization temperature towards adsorption of ammonia, iodine number, metilen blue number, and porosity of activated carbon and Cr/activated carbon catalyst. The determination of porosity include surface area, micropore volume and total pore volume. The results showed the best carbonization temperature activated carbon and Cr/activated carbon catalyst at 700°C. The adsorption ammonia of activated carbon and Cr/activated carbon catalyst as 6.379 mmol/g and 8.1624 mmol/g. The iodine number of activated carbon and Cr/activated carbon catalyst as 1520.16 mg/g and 1535.67 mg/g. The metilen blue number of activated carbon and Cr/activated carbon catalyst as 281.71 mg/g and 319.18 mg/g. The surface area of activated carbon and Cr/activated carbon catalyst as 1527.80 m2/g and 1652.58 m2/g. The micropore volume of activated carbon and Cr/activated carbon catalyst as 0.7460 cm3/g and 0.8670 cm3/g. The total pore volume of activated carbon and Cr/activated carbon catalyst as 0.8243 cm3/g and 0.8970 cm3/g.Keywords : activated carbon, palm empty fruit bunch, porosity, catalyst, chromium

Abstract

Research has been done on the synthesis of catalyst Co/Activated Natural Zeolite. The variables studied were the mass ratio of Cobalt to Zeolite and temperature of reduction during catalyst activation. The catalyst produced were analysed in their acidity and surface area. Acidity was presented in the form of ammonia and pyridine adsorption on the catalyst surface. The results showed the increasing Cobalt to Zeolite mass ratio will increase acidity of the catalyst produced. Reduction temperature during catalyst activation also gave same effect as Cobalt to Zeolite mass ratio did. Best ratio within the range of this study was Cobalt to Zeolite mass ratio of 6:20, which was found at reduction temperature of 400 C. This ratio gave catalyst acidity correspond to ammonia adsorption of 6.4615 mmol/g, and to pyridine adsorption of 2.6047 mmol/g catalyst. The best reduction temperature was 450 C at ratio of 6:20. The acidity of this catalyst was of 7.5202 mmol/g as in ammonia adsorption, and was of  3.662 mmol/g as in pyridine adsorption. Catalyst surface area of the best ratio was 32.63 m2/g, whilst catalyst surface area of the best reduction temperature was 38.95 m2/g. Keywords: catalyst, cobalt, activated natural Zeolite
