Abstract

Dehydrogenation of methylcyclohexane is studied over commercial 0.3 wt% Pt/Al2O3 catalyst. The effect of catalyst particle size, space velocity, temperature, and partial pressure of hydrogen was studied. It was observed that the dehydrogenation reaction is a strong function of the ratio of reactor internal diameter to catalyst particle size, temperature, and feed composition. The experimental data obtained was kinetically analyzed and first order power law model considering reversible reaction was found appropriate. The apparent activation energy of the catalyst was 100.6 kJ/mol.
