Abstract

Equilibrium concentrations of n-hexane, isohexanes, methylcyclopentane, and benzene have been calculated and compared with experimental conversion data in the presence of a platinum catalyst. The results can be interpreted in terms of equilibration between n-hexane and each of two types of intermediates leading to saturated C6 products and benzene, respectively, at a hypothetical "effective surface hydrogen pressure" which is higher than that measured in the gas phase.
