Methane Transformation using Light Gasoline as Co-Reactant over Zn/H-ZSM11

  • Oscar A. Anunziata

The catalytic conversion of methane (C1) to aromatic hydrocarbons (AH) such as benzene, toluene and xylenes (BTX) over a Zn/H-ZSM-11 catalyst using Light Gasoline (C5+C6) as co-reactant was studied. AH yields were as high as 30 %mol at 500 °C, w/f = 40 g h mol−1 at C1 molar fraction = 0.20. The contact time and time-on-stream effects on the product distribution, were analyzed in detail in order to obtain information about the evolution of different species. The C1 conversion reached 36 mol% C using Zn/HZSM-11 with content of 2.13 mol of Zn2+ per cell unit.
