Abstract

The study of the reaction of the conversion of isopropanol at atmospheric pressure and under inert gas was carried out on a series of vanadium catalysts and on a porous support activated carbon prepared from vegetable waste (dates). This reaction competitively produces acetone and propene; it is widely used as a test reaction to study acidic and basic sites. The decomposition of isopropanol occurs by two parallel reactions, the dehydration requires strong Bronsted acid sites giving olefin (propene) and the dehydrogenation is done either in basic sites or in a basic acid pair, either in a redox couple. All samples were characterized by different techniques: FT-IR, DRX, SEM-EDX, and SBET.
