- The catalytic conversion of toluene on MnOx/TiO2 catalysts was examined in the presence of ozone. The
MnOx/TiO2 catalysts were prepared by a wet-impregnation method. A set amount of manganese acetate was
dissolved in distilled water. The TiO2 nanoparticles, as the support materials in this study, were synthesized by a
thermal decomposition process. The generation of TiO2 nanoparticles by the thermal decomposition of titanium
tetraisopropoxide (TTIP) was carried out in an electric tune furnace. The TiO2 nanoparticles were characterized
by X-ray diffraction, Brunauer-Emmett-Teller measurements and transmission electron microscopy. Compared
to the commercial photocatalyst (P25), the TiO2 nanoparticles prepared at 900˚C had a small particle size (10.5
nm), pure anatase phase and a high degree of crystallinity with a dense polyhedral structure. The concentration
of toluene was varied in the range of 20-100 ppm and the ozone to toluene ratio was increased from 1.0 to 15.0.
The reaction temperature was controlled between 25-100˚C and the space velocity was fixed at 20000 h-1. The
COx selectivity was enhanced considerably by the catalyst supported on TiO2 (thermal decomposition process)
after injecting ozone. The activity of the catalyst depended mainly on the support used. The catalyst synthesized
by the thermal decomposition process was found to be the most active support.
