Ni nanocatalysts supported on MIL-53(Al) for DCPD hydrogenation

RSC Adv. 2022 Mar 22;12(15):9044-9050. doi: 10.1039/d2ra00238h. eCollection 2022 Mar 21.


Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) with many unique advantages have drawn wide attention in the field of catalysis. However, the poor structural stability of MOFs limits its application. Heat treatment for MOFs can enhance its electrical conductivity and structural stability, which helps to improve the catalytic performance. Ni nanoparticles supported on MIL-53(Al) were synthesized through different heat treatment temperature. Catalysts with uniform distribution of active nickel and rich mesoporous structure were obtained by adjusting the heat treatment temperature to 500 °C. The results show this catalyst has the best hydrogenation activity and stability. Under the reaction conditions of 60 °C and 2 h, the conversion rate of DCPD is 100%, and the selectivity of endo-THDCPD is higher than 95%. After five cycles, the catalyst also show excellent stability and high activity, the conversion rate of DCPD is still 100%.
