In this research, C32H16ClFeN8 nanocomposite was synthesized with the use of iron (III) chloride, urea and phthalic anhydride precursors for desulfurization of JP4 jet fuel. Nickel powder was also used in a separate process and its desulphurization ability was compared with Raney nickel alloy and the synthesized nanocomposite. X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS), and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) were used to identify the prepared samples. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used to determine the morphology of the particles. Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) method was applied to determine the surface area, pore volume, and pore diameter of the samples. Desulfurization of JP4 jet fuel in the presence of C32H16ClFeN8 nanocomposite under ultrasonic and a mild condition (temperature: 25-35 °C and atmospheric pressure) was performed. The obtained results indicated that the prepared nanocomposite due to its safety is competitive with nickel powder.
