Abstract

Rock samples containing about 60% of mordenite have been studied for catalytic properties, the samples originating from Tokaj Mountains, Hungary. Samples modified by hydrochloric acid treatment and/or doping with platinum have been tested by the hydroisomerization of n-hexane. The effect of pretreatment and reaction parameters on the activity and selectivity of catalysts have been studied. It has been found that the catalyst shows maximum activity at the module of 52.4. However, the activity has decreased to 25% as a result of coke formation due to strong cracking within 3 hours. Cracking has been minimum on the catalysts doped with Pt, their activity has not changed as far as time on stream is concerned, whereas their selectivity has shown nearly the same value as obtained on synthetic mordenite. -Authors
