Abstract

The isomerization reaction of n-pentane and n-hexane was studied at low temperature (100-150 degree C) and at a total pressure of 20 bar on aluminum-oxide supported platinum catalyst modified by chlorination. It was found that, in contrast to the high temperature process using a IP-62 type catalyst, the amount of isomers can be significantly increased and the results obtained approach BP and UOP data. The process is economic and a considerable increase in capacity can be obtained. The octane number of the product mixture is higher by 5-10 times than that of the traditional process.
