The comparative evaluation of dehydrogenation yields and selectivities of skeletal reactions from n-hexane reactions on monofunctional Pt catalysts is a good universal indicator of catalyst deactivation, independently of the presence and the nature of the support. Four regions could be defined with increasing carbon accumulation, causing "beneficial", "selective", "nonselective" and "severe" deactivation.
