Determination of Activity and Selectivity of n-Heptane by Reforming Catalytic Pt-V Supported on gamma-Alumina

Document Type : Research Paper




Bimetallic Pt-V supported by Gamma-alumina is used to observe the changes of nheptane
when passed over this catalyst. The Pt concentration was kept constant at
0.1wt% while the concentration of the vanadium was 0.5wt%. The activity and
selectivity of catalyst have been determined under conditions at 450-500 degrees
centigrade and 15-30 attn. The experimental results show that the addition of second
metal to the Pt catalyst results in a modification of the metal and acid functions. The
results show that when vanadium is present, the catalyst has high selectivity for
aromatization reaction.
