Sorbents of calcined limestone and oyster particles having a diameter of about 0.63mm were exposed to simulated fuel gases containing 5000ppm $H_2S$ for temperatures ranging from 600 to 80$0^{\circ}C$ in a TGA (Thermalgravimetric analyzer). The reaction between CaO and $H_2S$ proceeds via an unreacted shrinking core mechanism. The sulfidation rate is likely to be controlled primarily by countercurrent diffusion through the product layer of calcium sulfide(CaS) formed. The kinetics of the sorption of $H_2S$ by CaO is sensitive to the reaction temperature and particle size, and the reaction rate of oyster was faster than the calcined limestone.
