The work is devoted to the modification of H-ZSM-5 samples with sodium hydroxide and oxalic acid to provide the formation of the mesoporous structure of the zeolite and to obtain optimal Si/Al ratio. Moreover, zeolite active sites were modified with Co, Ni, Fe in order to decrease polyaromatic substances formation during methanol transformation into hydrocarbons. The testing of the samples was performed at 350 ºC in a flow reactor, the methanol feed rate was maintained at 0.16 g(methanol)/(g(Cat)*h). Dimethyl ether transformation rate into hydrocarbons was found to be 0.055-0.1 kg(DME)/(kg(Cat)*h) for investigated catalysts. Alkali treatment of H-ZSM-5 samples results in the formation of a mesoporous structure with a mean pore diameter of 5 nm. Formation of additional mesopores results in some increase of dimethyl ether to hydrocarbons transformation rate up to 0.09 kg(DME)/(kg(Cat)*h). Zeolite treatment with oxalic acid results in decreasing of Si/Al ratio from 0.76 to 0.41 that case some decrease of dimethyl ether transformation rate from 0.07 kg(DME)/(kg(Cat)*h) to 0.05 kg(DME)/(kg(Cat)*h), however considerable decrease of polyaromatic hydrocarbons concentration in reaction media was achieved for sample with lowest Si/Al ratio. Modification of H-ZSM-5 with Co, Fe, Ni results in some increase of dimethyl ether transformation rate up to 0.07-0.1 kg(DME)/(kg(Cat)*h) and a considerable decrease of polyaromatic hydrocarbons concentration in reaction media due to active sites modification.The ZSM-5-Ni-0.001M sample showed highest activity 0.1 kg(DME)/(kg(Cat)*h).
