    ABSTRACT: Electrophoretic mobility measurements in the pH 2‐10 range are described for several commercial HPLC silica microparticles and a laboratory-produced product. The content of metal impurities for the silicas was also determined by AAS. An acidic/hydrothermal treatment was used to generate a more homogenous surface for some of the silicas. The zero points of charge (zpc) for both a native and a treated silica plus several commercial HPLC silicas were compared. The electrophoretic mobility method may be useful in predicting the utility of certain types of silica supports for chromatographic separations.

    ABSTRACT: H-ZSM-5 zeolite was modified with phosphorus. The obtained P/ZSM-5 catalyst was subjected to further treatments with chromium and nickel. The distribution and strength of different acid sites of zeolites were investigated by means of temperature-programmed desorption of ammonia. The active and strong acid sites were confirmed by measuring the rate constants for cracking ofn-hexane, as a probe molecule. Reduction of pore opening size of the modified ZSM-5 was monitored by a standard test reaction of probe molecules ofm-xylene and ethylbenzene. Selective alkylation of toluene with methanol top-xylene was studied over ZSM-5 and modified zeolite catalysts. The P/ZSM-5 zeolite was the most selective catalyst top-xylene but the toluene conversion decreased drastically. The addition of chromium to P/ZSM-5 zeolite increased the toluene conversion and the yield ofp-xylene was very close to P/ZSM-5 catalyst. The addition of nickel did not exhibit a significant improvement of the catalyst performance. The deactivation of catalysts, due to coke deposition during run, was also considered. P/ZSM-5 zeolite showed the lowest stability with time on stream. The addition of chromium and nickel to P/ZSM-5 zeolite increased the stability of the catalyst.
