Title Support metal catalyst and method for synthesizing ammonia using same catalyst
Abstract A catalyst for continuous synthesis of ammonia using gas containing hydrogen and nitrogen as raw materials is characterized in that a vector supporting a transition metal exhibiting catalytic activity is a two-dimensional electride or a precursor thereof. The two-dimensional electride or the precursor thereof is: MxNyHz (M is one or more types of group 2 metals selected from the group consisting of Mg, Ca, Sr, and Ba; x, y, and z are defined as 1 <= x <= 11, 1 <= y <= 8, and 0 <= z <= 4, respectively; x is an integer; and y and z are not limited to being integers); a metal nitride represented by M3N2 (M being as defined above); or a metal carbide selected from the group consisting of Y2C, Sc2C, Gd2C, Tb2C, Dy2C, Ho2C, and Er2C. Using such catalysts, the nitrogen and hydrogen as raw materials are continuously reacted on the catalyst in an ammonia synthesis reaction device under the following conditions: a reaction temperature of preferably 100 to 600 DEG C and a reaction pressure of 10 kPa or greater and less than 20 MPa.
Outline of related art and contending technology Background Art
To M3 N2 (Mas Ca, Sr or Ba) an alkaline earth metal nitride is applied to a semiconductor device represented by an aluminum nitride, ceramic particles of metal for sliding member, battery electrode material, conductive particles and the like (Patent Document 1). Patent Document 1 discloses the 2nd group metal made of a heat decomposing amino compound M3 N2 (Mas Be, Mg, Ca, Sr or Ba) or M2 N(Mas Be, Mg, Ca, Sr or Ba) or the like method. Patent Document 2 discloses the ammonia from the 2nd-group metal reaction, to give the layer to liquefy 2nd metal amino compound, and the 2nd-group metal heat decomposition of high-purity amino compound M3 N2 (Mas Be, Mg, Ca, Sr or Ba) of the method.
To date, α-Ca3 N2, β-Ca3 N2, γ-Ca3 N2, Ca11 N8, Ca2 Nor the like as are well-known calcium nitride. In addition, calcium nitride hydride Ca2 NH,CaNH,Ca(NH2)2 or the like (hereinafter referred to as "Ca-N-H-based compound") have also been known to the art.
Ca3 N2 that the Ca dissolved in liquid ammonia, and is prepared by heat decomposition under a nitrogen atmosphere. As shown in the following reaction formula, Ca3 N2 and the moisture in the air react to form calcium hydroxide and ammonia. The reaction may be carried out in water.
Ca3 N2 +6H2 O→3Ca (OH)2 +2NH3
In addition, it is known that Ca2 Nis easily oxidized, is extremely unstable substance, has been reported Ca2 Nstably present in a range of not more than 1000 °C to 250 °C in nitrogen gas or argon gas to 800 °C (Non-Patent Document 1).
On the other hand, the present invention have been found in the human 2013 Ca2 Nis a two-dimensional electron-accepting compound (Non-Patent Document 2). Ca2 N:e- is an electron as an anion incorporated into the [Ca2 N]+ serving as a layer to form a layered inorganic compound, may be heat under vacuum conditions through Ca3 N2 is produced and metal Ca. It has been reported that Ca2 N:e- conduction electron concentration of 1.39x1022 /cm3, 2.6eV having a work function. Then, reported in Non-Patent Document 3 in which the two-dimensional electron-donating compound.
The present invention having a layered crystal structure and is made for al.also to Ionization [AE2 N]+ e- nitride represented by (AE is selected from Ca, Sr, Ba of at least one element) consisting of a nitride-donating compound related to the invention is directed to patent application (Patent Document 3).
On the other hand, to a gas containing hydrogen and nitrogen as a raw material, an iron oxide as a catalyst, such as aluminum oxide, potassium oxide as a promoter of the Haber-Bosch ammonia synthesis method is widely used. This method is no appreciable change 100 years. By Haber-Bosch process for ammonia synthesis is at 300 °C-500 °C, 20-40 mpa of the high temperature and pressure, allowing nitrogen gas and hydrogen gas is carried out by reacting on the catalyst.
VIII metal of Group VIB metals and a ternary nitride (Patent Document 4), cobalt-molybdenum complex nitride (Patent Document 5) or the like as are well-known ammonia synthesis catalyst as well. The present invention in a mayenite type compound is ammonia synthesis catalyst carrier been developed a load of the metal catalyst (Patent Document 6-7, Non-Patent Document 4-5).
