Musthofa, M. and Razali, N. A. M. and Hairon, N. and Triwahyono, S. The effect of Si/Al ratio on propane aromatization over H-ZSM5 catalysts. In: Regional Annual Fundamental Science Seminar 2008 (RAFSS 2008), 27 â€“ 29 May 2008 , Ibnu Sina Institute for Fundamental Science Studies, UTM.
Aromatization of propane has been investigated over H-ZSM5 catalysts with Si/Al ratios of 23, 50, 80 and 280. The physicochemical properties of catalysts were determined by nitrogen physisorption, pyridine adsorbed FTIR and X-ray Diffraction techniques. The reaction was carried out by continuous flow reactor at 723 â€“ 923 K under oxygen atmosphere. The products of BTX (benzene, toluene and xylene) were analyzed by FID Gas Chromatography. The conversion of propane reached to 70, 63, 62 and 21 % for H-ZSM5 with Si/Al ratio of 23, 50, 80, and 280, respectively.
