A study on the desulfurization of JP-8 jet fuel over transition metal ion-exchanged Y-zeolites showed that zeolite Y exchanged with Ce and Pd displayed a higher sulfur adsorption capacity compared to other transition metal ion-exchanged zeolites. The PdY-zeolite exhibited a higher selectivity for the adsorption of 2,3-DMBT. As Ce is less expensive than Pd, the Co-exchanged zeolite might be considered a more promising candidate for deep desulfurization of transportation fuels.
