Abstract

Microkinetic and spectroscopic analysis of skeletal isomerization of linear butenes were performed over H-FER. The effect of butene partial pressure and the rate of formation of isobutene and major byproducts are reported. Results show zero order dependence of isobutene production and first order dependence of byproduct formation with butene pressure. Biphenyl type molecules are proposed as coke species and related to byproduct formation.
