Abstract

The mechanism of potassium-catalyzed C/CO//2 reaction is studied by a temperature and concentration programmed reaction (TCPR) technique. The proposed redox mechanism contains three surface complexes: -CO//2K, -COK, and -CK. The oxide groups are the intermediates during C/CO//2 gasification. The completely reduced form, -CK, is the end product of catalyst reduction and is the precursor for K loss. The stoichiometries of these surface groups are confirmed by oxygen and potassium balances.
