A bimetallic catalyst Ni-Co / γ-Al2O3was prepared by impregnationmethod . Characterizedby atomic absorption (AA) techniqueandXRDdiffraction. Thesurfacearea andpore volume was measuredaccordingthe BETmethod.
Thiscatalyst was used in theoxidative desulfurization of gasoil in the presence of hydrogenperoxide H2O2 30% as an oxidizing agent.
The results indicated that thecatalystwasefficient to remove sulfur from gas oil depending on temperature, hydrogen peroxide H2O2 30 % , solvent used for extraction.
The maximum observed sulfur removal reached 70.44%.
