Abstract: The Mo-promoted Cu-Fe bimetal catalysts were prepared and used for the formation of dimethyl carbonate (DMC) from CO2 and methanol. The catalysts were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), temperature programmed reduction (TPR), laser Raman spectra (LRS), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) and temperature programmed desorption (TPD) techniques. The experimental results demonstrated that the Mo promoters can decrease the reducibility and increase the dispersion of Cu-Fe clusters. The concentration balance of base-acid sites can be readily adjusted by changing the Mo content. The moderate concentration balance of acid and base sites was in favor of the DMC formation. Under optimal experimental conditions, the highest methanol conversion of 6.99% with a DMC selectivity of 87.7% can be obtained when 2.5 wt% of Mo was loaded. © 2013 Min Xiao.
