Abstract

Removal of sulfur compounds from transportation fuels is a requirement in the worldwide effort to reduce emissions from transportation fuels. Refineries use the hydrodesulfurisation (HDS) process to reduce sulfur compounds in fuels. However, the HDS process requires high hydrogen pressure and temperature, making it costly. An alternative to the HDS process is oxidative desulfurisation solvent extraction, which requires low-temperature operating conditions. In this regard, deep eutectic solvents (DESs) are attractive for researchers to desulfurise transportation fuels solvent extraction due to their low-cost. In our study, DESs were synthesised using phenylacetic acid (PAA) and salicylic acid (SAA) as hydrogen bond acceptors (HBAs) and tetraethylene glycol (TTEG) as hydrogen bond donor (HBD) in the mole ratio of 1:2. DESs were characterised by using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. Physicochemical properties of DESs, such as density, viscosity and refractive index, were also measured. The synthesised DESs were used to extract organosulfur compounds from model fuel and actual diesel. An oxidation study was carried out for model fuel and diesel, followed by solvent extraction using these synthesised DESs. The extraction efficiency for PAA/TTEG(1:2) and SAA/TTEG(1:2) was achieved as 50.16% and 38.89% for model fuel at a temperature of 30°C using a solvent to feed ratio of 1.0 while for diesel, it was 38% and 37%. However, it increased to 77%, 68% and 54%, 73%, respectively, for PAA/TTEG(1:2) and SAA/TTEG(1:2) when the feedstocks were oxidised. These results showed better extraction performance of DES PAA/TTEG(1:2) than that of SAA/TTEG(1:2) at low temperature 30°C using combined extractive catalytic oxidative desulfurisation. Hence, the DES synthesised using SAA and TTEG in the molar ratio of 1:2 works better as an extraction solvent for removing organic sulfur compounds from fuels at low temperatures.
