Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


The Transient Response Method (TRM) and other transient techniques have been widely used to study different heterogeneous catalytic reactions In the present work TRM was used to study the conversion of n-hexane and n-butane on an industrial Pt/Al2O3 catalyst. The focus was laid to investigate reactions taking place in the aromatization and the isomerization of hydrocarbons. This study was aimed at differentiating between the catalytic properties of 'hydrogen precovered' and 'hydrogen free' and catalyst surfaces.
