Abstract: The world market imposes stringent requirements to sulfur content in diesel fuel. Existing desulfurization processes have several disadvantages, therefore necessary to develop new, more efficient and less expensive methods of desulfurization. The most affordable and easiest desulfurization method is the oxidation of sulfur-containing hydrocarbons with oxygen on heterogeneous catalysts. These processes use oxygen in the air as an oxidant, which makes them cheaper.
