Fluorine Modified TAPO-5: Synthesis and Catalytic Performance in Cyclohexanone Ammoximation
A series of fluorine modified TAPO-5 molecular sieves was synthesized by one-pot method using ammo-nium hexafluorotitanate as titanium and fluorine sources. The XPS and DRS UV-Vis results indicated that the exis-tence of F could promote the formation of tetrahedrally coordinated framework Ti and Al, meanwhile, inhibit the formation of anatase TiO2 in TAPO-5 sieves due to the unique role of F in the sol-gel process of metal ions. Further-more, TG, contact angle test, Py-FTIR and 27Al MAS NMR results revealed that fluorine modification increased the surface hydrophobicity and the Lewis acidity of Ti active sites through forming Al x F y units in the neighborhood. All these factors make these fluorine modified TAPO-5 sieves exhibit good catalytic performance in the ammoximation of cyclohexanone.
