Besides, according to the research results on alkali metals poisoning resistance of these catalysts, it was discovered, the treated-catalyst poisoned by sodium salt had the best resistance performance, which might be related with the modification of the Non -thermal plasma, leading to more dispersed surface acid sites, to get more active sites, meanwhile, the toxicity of K was stronger than Na.
However, [Si.sup.4+] in the oxygen-silicon tetrahedron always be substituted by [Al.sup.3+] and form a alumina tetrahedron with some extra negative charge, which needs alkali metal cations to achieve the charge balance.
Basically, alkali metal hydroxide acts as a catalyst, but almost the same amount which is added during synthesis is leached out from the hardened structure [15].
For all of the alkali metal salts used in the present calculations, as the diameter of the container decreases, the curvature of the interface, which is initially located near the container wall, starts to extend toward the center of the interface profile, reducing its flat portion.
