摘要：Mg-Al hydrotalcites for catalyzing glucose isomerization to fructose are prepared. Effects of atom ratios of Mg/Al ranging from 1 to 4 and calcination temperatures from 250-650 degrees C on catalytic performance were examined systematically. It was found that the hydrotalcite (Mg2Al1LDH) calcined at 450 degrees C with an atom ratio of Mg/Al=2 is an excellent catalyst for glucose isomerization. Characterizations by SEM, EDS, TEM, XRD, FTIR, TG and BET demonstrated that the formed oxide condensed phase as well as the interaction with the alumina helps promote glucose isomerization reaction due to their appropriate basic sites at high calcination temperature. With Mg2Al1-450 as the catalyst, kinetic model analysis confirmed that the reaction of glucose isomerization to fructose was an exothermal reversible reaction; both the forward and reverse reactions are quasi-first-order reactions with activation energies of 71.82 kJ/mol and 48.15 kJ/mol, respectively, while the side reaction is a zero-order reaction with an activation energy of 94.22 kJ/mol. Therefore, high isomerization reaction temperature is not beneficial to enhance the yield and selectivity of fructose.
