Mechanisms of catalytic cracking

Strongly acidic zeolites, including dealuminated Y zeolites (faujasite), are used in catalytic cracking (Fig. 1). The stability of these zeolites can be increased by incorporating cerium or rare earth ions.

The following figure shows the cleavage mechanism using the example of n-hexane:

This takes a central position here C.6-Cbenium ion, which can form

  • by adding the proton of the surface hydroxide group to a trace amount of hexene in the educt,
  • by the direct cleavage of a C-C or C-H bond according to the non-classical Haag-Dessau mechanism.

That C.6-Carbenium ion splits into in the β-position on the catalyst surface C.2-Olefin and aC.4-Carbenium ion or in a C.3-Olefin and a C.3-Carbenium ion. The react with hydride transferC.3/C.4-Cbenium ions with another molecule of hexane, with a new C.6-Carbenium ion and the corresponding C.3/C.4-Carbons are formed. Another possible reaction of the C.6-Carbenium ionis that it is formed by the addition ofC.2/C.3-Olephins to theC.8/C.9-Carbenium ions react. Via cleavage in the β position and subsequent hydride transferC.4- and C.5-Hydrocarbons are built up.

High molecular weight coke precursors are built up through the consecutive addition of further olefins.

    By their nature, men are more interested in the question What to do ?, and women - Who is to blame?

    I can believe to you :)

    You commit an error. Let's discuss. Write to me in PM, we will communicate.

    Thanks for the information on the topic. Never mind the bots. Just overwrite them and that's it.

    It is remarkable, rather amusing message

    Of course you are rights. In this something is I like this thought, I completely agree with you.
