Adsorption and transformation of carbon tetrachloride on Pt-containing zeolites (Y-FAU and mordenite) were studied. A combination of instrumental methods revealed that carbon tetrachloride reacts immediately after adsorption giving methane and HCl as main and chloroform as intermediate products. Besides these hydrodechlorination products a small amount of phosgene was also detected on the ion-exchanged Pt,NaY-FAU sample. However, it was not observed on Pt/HM-MOR zeolite.
