Reaction kinetics studies were conducted for the conversions of ethanol and acetic acid over silica-supported Pt and Pt/Sn catalysts at temperatures from 500 to 600 K. Addition of Sn to Pt catalysts inhibits the decomposition of ethanol to CO, CH4, and C2H6, such that PtSn-based catalysts are active for dehydrogenation of ethanol to acetaldehyde.(More)
Reaction kinetics data were collected for isobutane conversion over a series of ultra stable Y (USY) zeolite catalysts with and without rare earth cations and subjected to various extents of dealumination by steaming. We conducted these reaction studies at low temperatures (523-573 K) using isobutane feed streams containing known levels of isobutylene(More)
