Activity for hydrolysis of CCl2F2 (CFC12) on various metal sulfate was investigated. Zr(SO4)2 was found to be the most active while FeSO4, Cr2(SO4) 3, Al2(SO4)3, La2(SO 4)3 and Ce2(SO4)3 had intermediate activity. MnSO4, CoSO4, and MgSO4 showed low activity and SrSO4, CaSO4, and BaSO 4 had even less activity. The major carbon containing product was CO2 and small amount of CClF3 and CO were formed over several sulfates. The crystal structure of the sulfates was stable during decomposition of CCl2F2, and the conversion reached a steady state after initial decrease at 275 °C over Zr(SO4) 2 catalyst. The concentration of surface hydroxyl was larger than that over AlPO4-based catalysts and a reaction mechanism similar to that over AlPO4-based catalysts was proposed.
