Abstract
We report the first observation of preferential anchoring of an impregnated catalytic phase onto penta-coordinated Al3+ sites on the surface of gamma-Al2O3. The interaction of barium oxide with a gamma-alumina support was investigated by high resolution solid state Al-27 magic angle spinning NMR at an ultra-high magnetic field of 21.1 T and at sample spinning rates of up to 23 kHz. Under these experimental conditions, a peak in the NMR spectrum at similar to 23 ppm with relatively low intensity, assigned to 5-coordinated Al3+ ions, is clearly distinguished from the two other peaks representing Al3+ ions in tetra-, and octahedral coordination. Spin-lattice Al-27 relaxation time measurements clearly show that these penta-coordinated Al3+ sites are located on the surface of the gamma-alumina support. BaO deposition onto this gamma-alumina sample resulted in the loss of intensity of the 23 ppm peak. The intensity loss observed was linearly proportional to the amount of BaO deposited. The results of this study strongly suggest that, at least for BaO, these penta-coordinated Al3+ ions are the nucleation sites. (c) 2007 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved
