Chlorinated Volatile Organic Compounds (CVOCs) come from a wide range of sources and are common precursors of PM2.5 and ozone pollution, which pose a serious threat to the environment and have adverse effects on human health. Catalytic degradation is one of the effective methods to solve CVOCs pollution, which has the advantages of low operating temperature, less chlorine-containing by-products and high degradation efficiency. The core of this technology is to design and develop catalyst materials with excellent stability and catalytic performance. At present, molecular sieve catalysts have attracted extensive attention because of their acidity and unique pore structure. In this paper, the current research status of catalysts supported by molecular sieve, such as noble metals, transition metal oxides and perovskites, and their activity, acidity, stability and selectivity in CVOCs catalytic reactions were summarized and analyzed, and the future development direction of CVOCs molecular sieve supported catalysts was prospected.
