- Biphenyl-based eutectic mixture (BPDM, 35 wt% Biphenyl, and 65 wt% Diphenylmethane) has gained attraction as a strong candidate for liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHC) particularly due to the high hydrogen capacity (6.9 wt%). To take full advantage of its capacity, facile and high-extent dehydrogenation with reversibility is the key, where the appropriate selection of supports in heterogeneous catalysts plays a crucial role. Herein, the effect of the properties of commercial Al2O3 pellets in the dehydrogenation reaction of a hydrogenated biphenyl-based mixture (H12-BPDM) over Pt/Al2O3 catalysts is investigated. H2 production rate, 10 h performance tests, and product composition from the dehydrogenation of H12-BPDM are evaluated with the in-house catalytic screening tests using continuous fixed-bed reactors. Catalyst characterization and product analysis suggest that pore size distributions and corresponding surface properties of Al2O3 supports can lead to different dehydrogenation reaction characteristics of H12-BPDM. This study provides a rationale for the proper support selection for efficient utilization of BPDM as a LOHC.
