Abstract

The conversion of distillates into more useful products and the use of off-gases were among the major early developments in the refining industry. Hydrogenation of aromatics in kerosene with nickel catalysts was being tested around 1906–1910, as a method of improving burning qualities.1 As gasoline for automobiles became the most important refinery product during the period from 1900 onward, the need for increased production and better quality dominated the industry. Fears of future shortages led to the realization that better use had to be made of the crude oil available. Development of thermal cracking processes increased refinery gasoline yields and it was found that unsaturated hydrocarbons in the gasoline improved engine performance.
