Abstract

The mechanisms of aromatization of C6 and C7 alkanes have been investigated over Ni catalysts. On the basis of radioactive measurements with [3-14C]methylpentane it was concluded that benzene is formed both by a CHx addition-abstraction mechanism and by intramolecular rearrangements. A change of the product selectivity with hydrogen pressure has been interpreted in terms of a change in the ensemble size of Ni governed by strongly adsorbed hydrocarbon fragments.
