In this study, 1,2-dichlorobenzene (DCB), an important precursor of PCDDs and PCDFs, was chosen as a suitable model compound for the catalyzed deep oxidation of dioxin. The recently developed mesoporous materials from zeolites (MMZ) were used for the first time as a support for an oxidation catalyst. The catalytic oxidation of 1,2-dichlorobenzene over Pt/MMZ was carried out, and the catalytic activity was compared with that of Pt/-Al2O3, Pt/Al-MCM-41 and Pt/Beta catalysts. Pt/MMZ showed the highest catalytic activity among the catalysts tested. Interestingly, the catalytic activity of Pt/MMZ was maintained (>40%) at low temperatures (250 °C) at which the other catalysts showed extremely low activity (<5%). The high catalytic activity of Pt/MMZ was attributed to both the sufficient acidity and mesoporosity of the MMZ support.
