Abstract

The catalytic conversion of cumene was studied over silica-alumina, HY zeolites, pure alumina and molybdena-alumina. The goal of this work was to compare the mechanism of cumene conversion and the product distributions over different catalysts. Different mechanism prevail on the catalysts used as a consequence of the nature of the active sites. The acidic catalysts (silica-alumina and HY zeolites) promote a carbenium ion type mechanism (benzene formation), however, both the carbenium ion and radical type mechanism can be observed over alumina and molybdena - alumina.
