Spectroscopic and Catalytic Activity Studies of TAPO-5
The present work describes hydrothermal synthesis of titanium containing AlPO-5 (TAPO-5) and a systematic investigation was undertaken towards understanding the oxidation state, coordination and stability of titanium in TAPO-5 structure, by means of spectroscopic and catalytic activity. AlPO-5 containing Ti(IV) in the tetrahedral coordination was indicated by powder diffraction, DRUV-VIS and FTIR studies. Nitrogen adsorption–desorption studies revealed the microporous nature of the material. Field emission scanning electron micrographs showed flat shaped irregular crystals with ample surface roughness. Transmission electron micrographs showed an open structure containing thread like structures. Activity studies showed that p-cresol can selectively be converted to p-hydroxybenzyl alcohol. At 383 K, about 79% of p-cresol was converted into p-hydroxybenzyl alcohol and p-hydroxybenzaldehyde. By raising the reaction temperature to 408 K resulted in a decrease in conversion of p-cresol with selective yield of p-hydroxybenzyl alcohol.
