Metal oxide particles are considered as reactive adsorbents for the decontamination of toxic materials. The important feature is to enhance the surface chemical reactivity toward incoming adsorbates. It is expected that the adsorption efficiency of nano-sized MgO is greater than commercially common used MgO.
Nano-sized magnesium oxides (MgOs) and MgO-SiO2 composite were synthesized by polyol-meditation thermolysis, hydrothermal, and aerogel methods to remove sulfur compounds from methyl mercaptan/methane and CEES/nitrogen mixtures. And the difference in sorption capacity among the synthesized MgOs and between dry and wet gas conditions was compared by using dynamic adsorption method at different temperatures. In addition, the effects of calcination condition on adsorption capacity by calcination condition were investigated. The synthesized MgOs were characterized by XRD, BET, TGA, and TEM.
