Consequently, adding Al2O3 could increase the surface area and acidity values of SZ catalysts. Hwang et al., reported that doping of alumina to SZ increased the extent of sulfur retention on the surface of zirconia.14
In one set of experiments, cores samples were aged in a flow of 10% [H.sub.2]O mixed with air in a wide range temperature range (650 to 900 [degrees]C) for different durations (2 to 100 hours) to clearly determine the long-term durability as well as the temperature limitations of the catalysts. Table 1 summarizes the time-at-temperature matrix used in this study.
