Organic additives for hydrotreating catalysts: A review of main families and action mechanisms

Abstract : Ever more active hydrotreating (HDT) catalysts should be developed to meet the growing demand for cleaner fuels. With each novel generation of HDT catalysts the requirements of performance, stability and possibility of regeneration become more sophisticated. Versatile types of organic molecules are applied to improve the HDT catalysts, and to activate regenerated catalysts. The additives improve the dispersion of the active phase, the degree of promotion and modify the interactions with the support. Complex chemical and physical processes are involved in the mechanisms of action, which are different from one family of additives to another. In this review we summarize recent advances on the main types of additives, the current state of understanding of the mechanisms of their action as well as challenges and perspectives in developing novel additives for highly performing novel generations of HDT catalysts in a sustainable way.
