Alkylation of toluene with ethylene on unmodified large-crystal HZSM-5 has been studied in a flow system at 673 K, atmospheric pressure. The yield of ethyltoluenes increased and that of benzene and xylenes decreased with time on stream. This change in yields was accelerated by increasing the ethylene content of feed and by pretreating the catalyst with ethylene. Selectivity for toluene ethylation increase with increasing space velocity.
