Selective hydroisomerization of n-dodecane over platinum supported on zeolites

Selective hydroisomerization of n-dodecane over platinum supported on zeolites In this study, in order to develop catalysts for the selective isomerization of higher paraffin, the hydroisomerization reaction of n-dodecane was performed as a model reaction. Pt/ZSM-48, Pt/HZSM-5, Pt/HY, and Pt/SAPO-11 were examined for the selective hydroisomerization of n-dodecane. The catalysts were characterized via X-ray powder diffraction, N2 adsorption, and the temperature-programmed desorption of ammonia. Among the catalysts studied, the Pt/HZSM-48 catalyst exhibited the best isomerization selectivity in the hydroisomerization reaction of n-dodecane, which is attributed to the moderate acid sites and medium-sized pores present in the HZSM-48. The highest iso-dodecane yield was obtained at a reaction temperature of 280 °C in the Pt/HZSM-48 catalyst. The optimal selectivity of the n-dodecane hydroisomerization over the Pt/SAPO-11 catalyst was obtained at approximately 300 °C, which was slightly higher than that of the Pt/HZSM-48 catalyst.
