Abstract

Current approaches in the adsorptive desulfurization of real jet fuels and fractionated fuels over Ni-based adsorbents (Adsorbent-2 and -5) were presented. The major sulfur compounds in the JP-8 and in the light fraction of JP-8 were the alkyl benzothiophenes with two to three carbon atoms in the alkyl groups. The increase in temperature led to better desulfurization performance of Adsorbent-2. The Ni-based adsorbents exhibited higher adsorptive capacity and selectivity for removing sulfur from real JP-8 fuels. The adsorptive capacity depended on the adsorbent and on the operating conditions and the fuel composition.
