This paper discusses the performances of Ag/TiOx-Al2O3 adsorbent in desulfurizing JP5, JP8, and Off-Road Diesel at ambient conditions and investigates the sulfur adsorption pathways. The adsorbent capacities varied for different refined fuels due to variations in sulfur heterocycles. Infrared studies revealed multiple pathways for sulfur adsorption on silver adsorbent.
