ASTM WK71860

    New Test Method for Acid Site Characterization on Zeolites Using Dynamic Flow Method

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D32.01 | Committee D32 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This test method covers the determination of the desorption of propylamine during a constant temperature ramp and quantification of acid site concentration in Zeolites.


    Zeolite; Acid sites; Dynamic flow; propylamine; propylene, Temperature programmed desorption


    This test method complements the dynamic ammonia chemisorption followed by a temperature programmed desorption (TPD). This method is most useful as screening tools to measure relative acid site concentrations on zeolites. It may be extended to other solid-state acidic catalysts provided that the user exercises care in optimizing the pretreatment and measurement conditions for the catalyst being tested.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
