The reactions of ethylene are investigated on the catalysts found to be active in the aromatization of methane at high temperature. In contrast to the ZSM-5, pure Mo2C with low surface area exhibited a little activity for the cracking and transformation of ethylene into other hydrocarbons. Preparation of Mo2C in highly dispersed state on ZSM-5 enhanced the conversion of ethylene, and only slightly decreased the selectivity to aromatics measured for pure ZSM-5 under similar experimental conditions. A more significant effect of Mo2C was observed when it was deposited on silica rather inert for the activation and reactions of ethylene.
