Abstract(s)The performance of two zeolites with different structures and acidity properties was evaluated on the biosorption of Cr(VI) and catalytic oxidation of ethyl acetate. The starting zeolites, HY and HZSM5, were modified by ion exchange treatments in order to obtain zeolites with different acidity and sodium content. Arthrobacter viscosus supported on the different zeolites was used for Cr(VI) recovery from solution. The best removal efficiencies and uptake of chromium were achieved for the Y zeolites due to their higher ion exchange capacity. The Y and ZSM5 zeolites were characterized by ICP-AES, SEM, NH3 chemisorption, XRD and N2 adsorption. Y and ZSM5 zeolites obtained after biosorption of chromium were successfully reused as catalysts in the oxidation of ethyl acetate. The chromium-loaded ZSM5 zeolites were considerably more active and selective towards CO2 than chromium-loaded Y zeolites, essentially due to its different framework structure, textural and acidity properties.
