1. The authors have studied catalytic and thermal conversions of 1,3-dioxane, 2-alkyl, and 2,2-di-alkyl-1,3-dioxanes in a microreactor in a gas-liquid chromatograph. The effects of temperature, the carrier gas and the structure of the initial dioxane on the splitting rate of the dioxane ring have been studied. 2. An increase in the number of substituants in the 2 position of the dioxane ring and in the molecular weight of the alkyl substituent speeds up conversion. On platinized thermolyte conversion is much faster in hydrogen than in helium. 3. The dioxane ring isomerizes in hydrogen predominantly with opening of the ring at the 3,4 bond.
