Synthesis and activation for catalysis of Fe-SAPO-34 prepared using iron polyamine complexes as structure directing agents
MetadataShow full item record
The use of transition metal cations complexed by polyamines as structure directing agents (SDAs) for silicoaluminophosphate (SAPO) zeotypes provides a route, via removal of the organic by calcination, to microporous solids with well-distributed, catalytically-active extra-framework cations and avoids the need for post-synthesis aqueous cation exchange. Iron(II) complexed with tetraethylenepentamine (TEPA) is found to be an effective SDA for SAPO- 34, giving as-prepared solids where Fe2+-TEPA complexes reside within the cha cages, as indicated by Mössbauer, optical and X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopies. By contrast, when non-coordinating tetraethylammonium ions are used as the SDAs in Fe-SAPO-34 preparations, iron is included as octahedral Fe3+ within the framework. The complex- containing Fe-SAPO-34(TEPA) materials give a characteristic visible absorption band at 550 nm (and purple colouration) when dried in air that is attributed to oxygen chemisorption. Some other Fe2+ polyamine complexes (diethylenetriamine, triethylenetetramine and pentaethylenehexamine) show similar behaviour. After calcination in flowing oxygen at 550 °C, ‘one-pot’ Fe(TEPA) materials possess Fe3+ cations and a characteristic UV-visible spectrum: they also show appreciable activity in the selective catalytic reduction of NO with NH3.
