  • The macro kinetics of H2S absorption in three HPC-based systems were investigated.
  • The relevant parameters of absorption process were determined.
  • The macro-kinetic equations of practical importance were obtained.



Ionic liquids and heteropoly compounds have been found to be effective systems for H2S removal due to their unique properties. This study, which investigated the absorption kinetics of these new systems, continues our earlier research. Specifically, the macro kinetic characteristics of the H2S absorption for three systems, viz., a [Bmim]3PMo12O40/BmimCl solution, an aqueous solution of peroxo phosphomolybdic acid and an aqueous solution of CuH2PMo11VO40, were determined using a gas-liquid reaction cell. The gas and liquid phase mass transfer coefficients were measured, and the activation energy was calculated. The H2S absorption for the [Bmim]3PMo12O40/BmimCl solution can be expressed as a macro kinetic equation: NH2S = 6.6 × 10–2∙[exp(–1064/T)]∙CH2S1.120∙C[Bmim]3PMo12O400.099. For the aqueous solutions of peroxo phosphomolybdic acid and CuH2PMo11VO40, the absorption can be expressed as NH2S = 2.68 × 10–6∙[exp(–790/T)]∙CH2S0.252∙CPHPMo0.131 and NH2S = 1.02 × 10–6∙[exp(607/T)]∙CH2S0.510∙CCuH2PMo11VO400.431, respectively.
