Taking into account of the interesting properties of the CeO2, the CeO2-based regenerable adsorbents for the removal of thiophenic sulfur compounds present in the gasoline were developed. High surface area CeO2-TiO2 bimetallic oxides with various molar ratios synthesized by coprecipitation were used as adsorbents for the desulfurization of a model gasoline containing 430 ppm wt of sulfur in the form of thiophene, tetrahydrothiophene, benzothiophene, and 2-methylbenzothiophene in a fixed-bed flow reactor at ambient temperature and pressure. The bi-metal oxides had good selectivity for the organic sulfur compounds.
