Zr modified mesoporous alumina Al-TUD-1 with different Zr content was successfully synthesized via sol–gel method and the optimal thermal treatment time was 4 h. The characterization results of HRTEM, XPS and pyridine FT-IR revealed that Zr atoms acted as electronic promoters not only enhanced the sulfidation degree and modulated the morphology of MoS2 active phases but also brought more acidities into the alumina framework. Additionally, the sulfided catalysts were evaluated using dibenzothiophene (DBT) and FCC diesel as feedstocks, respectively. NiMo/ZrAT-100 catalyst with the largest pore size, the highest active metal sulfidities, as well as the highest total acid and B/L value exhibited the highest HDS (99.1%) and HDN efficiencies (98.7%) in diesel hydrotreating reaction; moreover, it possessed the largest reaction rate constant in DBT HDS reaction. Furthermore, a possible reaction network was also proposed, in which DDS route was the predominant pathway for DBT HDS.
