    China Petrol Proc & Petrochem Techn   
    Abstract3490)      PDF(pc) (132KB)(14065)       Save
    The poor quality of crude oil obviously leads to high sulfur content of oil products, and the technology for desulfurization of crude oil is urgently needed so that the sulfur content in petroleum products could be reduced from the root. This paper describes the progress in technology for desulfurization of crude oil. The present technologies for desulfurization of crude oil include caustic washing, dry gas desulfurization, hydrodesulfurization (HDS), etc. The new combined technologies for desulfurization of crude oil being studied are: biodesulfurization (BDS), hydrogenation-bacterial catalysis, the microwave-catalytic hydrogenation, the BDS-OD-RA desulfurization and oxidative desulfurization in electrostatic fields, and the ultrasonic/microwave-catalytic oxidation applied in our lab, with their development trends being also discussed.

    Abstract1954)      PDF(pc) (953KB)(10075)       Save
    The paraffin wax microemulsion was prepared with 58# paraffin wax, nonionic surfactant and anionic surfactant. The effects of manufacturing parameters on the particle diameter of paraffin wax microemulsion were the quantity of the emulsifier, the temperature and time of emulsification, stir speed, pH and accessory ingredient (cosurfactant). The results showed that the temperature of emulsification had little effect on the particle size of paraffin wax microemulsion in the range of 75-85℃. The other manufacturing parameters all had a great effect on the particle size of paraffin wax microemulsion. Optimum conditions were as follows: w(emulsifier) was 6%, emulsification temperature was 80℃, emulsification time was 40min, pH was about 8, stir speed was 600r/min and the cosurfactant was the n-amyl alcohol. Under this condition, we can prepare the translucent and baby blue paraffin wax emulsion which particle size was 97 nm.

    China Petrol Proc & Petrochem Techn    2012, 14 (2): 7-17.  
    Abstract2955)      PDF(pc) (724KB)(8722)       Save
    The green and effective Baeyer-Villiger oxidation reaction of cyclohexanone to prepare ε-Caprolactone is of particular importance in the synthesis of new polymer materials. We have discussed here several mechanism types of cyclohexanone Baeyer-Villiger oxidation with H2O2 in different reaction systems. Five main types have been addressed. 1) Noncatalyzed reaction type, the C=O of ketones is activated by H+, which is electrolytic dissociated from H2O2 and H2O, to improve the capability of C=O group to accept the electron pairs;2)Thermally activated radical reaction type, where the Criegee interminate is produced via two-steps of radical reaction with ·OH attack, with many more hydroxy radicals are excited in the presence of TS-1 zeolite ;3) Br?nsted acid catalysis reaction type, both O-O moiety and C=O group could be activated by Br?nsted acid; 4) Solid Lewis acid catalyzed C=O of the substrate activation reaction type, by enhancing the donor-acceptor interaction between the antibonding π*C=O orbital of cyclohexanone and HOMO of Sn-β zeolite; 5) Solid Lewis acid catalyzed H2O2 to form Me-OOH oxidative species, by employing the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) of Ti-OOH becoming a singly occupied molecular orbital(SOMO), with the O-O group highly electrophilic to attack the C=O of cyclohexanone in Baeyer-Villiger oxidation. In the end, we also compare the different mechanisms and give our opinions on the development direction of catalytic materials for eco-friendly Baeyer-Villiger oxidation of cyclohexanone in the years to come.

    Abstract2435)      PDF(pc) (194KB)(7516)       Save
    Partially or fully regenerated catalytic cracking catalysts were prepared by gasifying the coke deposited on coked catalysts with a gaseous mixture of oxygen and steam in a fixed fluidized bed (FFB). The resultant samples were characterized by different methods such as the nitrogen adsorption-desorption analysis, the X-ray diffractometry, the infrared spectroscopy, the ammonia temperature-programmed desorption (NH3-TPD) method, the X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis, the transmission electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (TEM-EDX), the thermal-gravimetric analysis (TGA) and the differential thermal analysis (DTA). The results showed that exposure of catalyst to steam for about 10 minutes at temperature ≥800℃ didn't cause too much destruction of the catalysts, and an amount of coke equating to about 0.27wt% was enough to block approximately all acid sites in micro-pores of the zeolite catalyst. Coke didn't show equal reactivity during coke burning-off that could be accelerated by the catalytic action of nearby metal atoms. However, when the carbon content on the catalyst reached about 2.44wt%, the catalytic action of metals on the catalyst was not evident. The severe thermal and hydrothermal environment during exposure of the catalyst to steam at a temperature in the range of about 860~880℃ for 30 minutes could lead to collapse of pore structure and transformation of crystal phase and consequently decrease the surface area and acid amount on the catalyst.

    A bacterial strain of genus Pseudomonas aeruginosa was inoculated into a hydrocarbon culture medium and incubated for a period of durations. The ability for the bacterial strain to biodegrade the hydrocarbon, viz. n-hexadecane, was evaluated by determining hexadecane concentrations of the inoculated culture medium on a gas chromatography (GC). Effect of pH on degrading ability of the bacterial isolate and impact of temperature on microbial growth were also explored. Results showed that Pseudomonas aeruginosa effectively enhanced biodegradation of n-hexadecane. Furthermore, the ability for Pseudomonas aeruginosa to biodegrade n-hexadecane was different at different pH values. It provided excellent degrading ability at pH 7.0. The microbial cells of Pseudomonas aeruginosa increased with increasing incubation durations at the temperatures ranging from 28℃ to 35℃, and a exponential phase of microbial growth was observed.

    China Petrol Proc & Petrochem Techn    2013, 15 (3): 86-90.  
    Abstract1772)      PDF(pc) (523KB)(7137)       Save
    A kinetic model of MTO process over the SAPO-34 catalyst considering the effect of water and coke deposition has been proposed. The model takes into account three steps of the MTO reaction in which the products cover 5 lumped components. The water in the feed not only reduces the concentration of methanol but also alleviates the deactivation of SAPO-34 catalyst. The kinetic parameters have been estimated by the least square method. It has been proved that the calculated values in the kinetic model are in good agreement with the experimental values.

    Abstract1804)      PDF(pc) (4596KB)(6980)       Save
    In this study, a suitable CFD (computational fluid dynamics) model has been developed to investigate the influence of liquid height on the discharge coefficient of the orifice-type liquid distributors. The orifice flow in different diameters and liquid heights has been realized using the shear stress transport (SST) turbulence model and the Gamma Theta transition (GTT) model. In the ANSYS CFX software, two models are used in conjunction with an automatic wall treatment which allows for a smooth shift from a wall function (WF) to a low turbulent-Re near wall formulation (LTRW). The results of the model simulation coupled with LTRW are closer to the experimental results compared with the models with WF, indicating that LTRW is more appropriate for the prediction of boundary layer characteristics of orifice flow. Simulation results show that the flow conditions of orifices change with the variation of liquid height. With respect to the turbulence in orifice, the SST model coupled with LTR is recommended. However, with respect to the transition to turbulence in orifice with an increase in liquid height, the predictions of GTT model coupled with LTRW are superior to those obtained using other models.

    Abstract2157)      PDF(pc) (754KB)(6910)       Save
    The oligomersation reactions on different catalysts were investigated and discussed. 1-Octene, 1-decene, 1-dodecene, a mixed olefins (with a mass ratio w(1-octene): w(1-decene):w(1-dodecene) of 30:40:30), and the product from paraffin cracking were oligomerized on an AlCl3/TiCl4 catalyst. The results indicate that the AlCl3 catalyst leads to severe coking reaction. With an increase in carbon number of alpha olefins, the freezing points of oligomers increase and the kinematic viscosities decline. The oligomers formed from the mixed olefins and the cracking product show higher kinematic viscosities. Normal paraffins in cracking product increase the freezing point of oligomer. Furthermore, distillation range of oligomer from the cracking product is close to those of oligomers from 1-octene and 1-decene while the oligomers from the mixed olefins and 1-dodecene have similar distillation ranges.
