$V_{2}O_{5}$/$TiO_{2}$ catalyst can be deactivated by ammonium salts formed by $SO_{2}$ oxidation and unreacted ammonium in presence of $SO_{2}$ in flue gas. The deactivation of catalyst by $SO_{2}$ depends on the $SO_{2}$ oxidation to $SO_{3}$. The oxidation of $SO_{2}$ is weakly affected by oxygen concentration, and strongly by the amount of vanadium loaded onto titania supports. Because unreacted ammonia is one of elements to form the ammonium salts, it is important to control the mole ratio of $NH_{3}/NOx$ in SCR. Thus the experiments about $NH_{3}/NOx$ were carried out. The reason of low activity of catalyst deactivated by ammonium salts is the change of pore volume. And TPD (Temperature Programmed Decomposition) was performed to find the decomposition of ammonium bisulfate on deactivated catalyst.
