Abstract

Catalysts with 0, 4, 8, and 12% MgO content were prepared by impregnation of NH4ZSM-5 with Mg (NO3)2 + MG (CH3CO2)2 followed by heating at 973 K. Alkylation of toluene with ethylene in nitrogen or hydrogen carrier gas was carried out on these catalysts at 673 K in a laboratory-scale fixed-bed downflow reactor made of quartz. The amount of coke deposited as well as the acidity and pore volume of the coke-containing catalyst were determined. In the early stage of the reaction, defined as the break-in period, the yield of ethyltoluenes increased and the yield of side products decreased with time on stream. Phenomena in the break-in period were explained by partial deactivation due to coke deposition.
