A γ-Al2O3 supported Pd-Pt bimetallic catalyst prepared by electrochemical metal adsorption has been tested in n-hexane dehydrocyclization. The Pd-Pt/Al2O3 catalyst, after calcination in oxygen followed by hydrogen treatment, showed higher activities and better selectivities for benzene and iso-hexane formation. The Pd-Pt/Al2O3 catalyst appeared to be less sensitive to the changes in the temperature of hydrogen treatment than the base Pt/Al2O3 catalyst.
