Abstract

A kinetic study of n-butane conversion over acidic and gallium (Ga) contg. MFI and TON zeolites revealed that Ga active sites create a new pathway for aroms. formation via dehydrogenation reaction steps. This pathway does not involve bulky bimol. hydrogen transfer steps of the aromatization process over acidic zeolites, and, as a consequence, leads to considerably higher enhancement of the aromatization activity of the 1-dimensional TON catalyst when compared to the three-dimensional MFI catalyst. This finding highlights fundamentally different spatial requirements for alkane aromatization over acidic and Ga contg. zeolites and indicates that the zeolites with severe spatial constraints could become very selective catalysts for alkane aromatization after their modification with Ga. It is anticipated that these results will initiate the search for new, highly selective aromatization catalysts based on zeolites with different structures. The 2nd important finding of this work is the evolution of the aromatization activity of GaH-TON and GaH-MFI catalysts during n-butane reaction that is likely assocd. with formation of catalytically active Ga+ ions. This process was completed in .apprx.15 min, i.e. much faster then similar processes that were reported earlier in the literature for the GaH-MFI catalysts. No data on the evolution of the aromatization activity was reported up to day for the 1-dimensional GaH-TON catalysts. [on SciFinder (R)]
