Abstract: Ammonium dioxothiotungstate was synthesized using different tungsten sources and characterized in detail by powder X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry, transmission electron microscopy, nitrogen adsorption, and temperature-programmed sulfidation. It was found that tungsten oxide nanobelts are superior to ammonium metatungstate as tungsten source for the synthesis of ammonium dioxothiotungstate due to a time-consuming aging step being excluded from the synthesis route. Moreover, detailed characteristic data reveal that, when tungsten oxide nanobelts are used, the physical and chemical properties of the resulting ammonium dioxothiotungstate including particles size, specific surface area, and sulfidation pattern were improved. Also, the hydrodesulfurization measurements showed higher catalytic activity and balanced selectivity of the resulting ammonium dioxothiotungstate.

Keywords: ammonium dioxothiotungstate - tungsten oxide - nanobelts - catalytic properties
