The most correct determination of the activity of heterogeneous catalysts is the specific stationary rate of the catalytic reaction at the given temperature, pressure, and composition of the reaction mixture being in contact with the given amount of the catalyst [1,2]. However, this kinetic approach is used very seldom because a number of complicated methodological and technical problems for the correct catalyst testing are still not solved. As a result, the experiments on testing the catalytic activity are generally labor consuming and expensive while the obtained kinetic data are not sufficiently reliable. It is known that the reaction rate depends on many catalyst properties (technique of its preparation, its chemical composition, texture, shape, particle size, etc.) as well as on the process parameters (temperature, pressure, composition of the reaction mixture, heat-and-mass transfer, etc.) [3].
