The Transformation of n-nonane in Conditions of Catalytic Cracking on ZSM-5 and V2O5/ZSM-5 Catalysts

The daily increasing demand for high-quality motor fuels requires constant improvement and modernization of existing technologies for oil refining. One of the main secondary processes of recycling hydrocarbon raw materials in industry, which allows to obtain high-octane components of automobile gasoline, valuable liquefied gases and raw materials for petrochemical industries is catalytic cracking of various types of distillate and residual raw materials. Nowadays, most catalysts of an industrial catalytic cracking contain expensive rare earth elements and platinum in its composition.

Features of the Reactions of n-hexane on the Catalyst NH4(ZHM)

The process of catalytic reforming remains one of the main processes of the modern petrochemical industry, allowing for obtain commodity products – gasoline, with high detonation resistance and raw materials for the petrochemical industry – aromatic hydrocarbons. One of the most important tasks of improving the reforming process is the development of new efficient catalytic systems that don’t have noble metals in their composition.
