Abstract: After catalyst screening for oxidative desulfurization of fuel oil within several polyoxometalates, H3PW6Mo6O40 was confirmed for the first time to be an effective and recoverable catalyst for the oxidative removal of thiophene, being
also effective for the desulfurization of real diesel and gasoline.
Keywords: thiophene - oxidative desulfurization - polyoxometalates - clean fuel
