It was shown that during the transformation of methanol on H-ZSM-5/Al2O3 catalyst with zeolite/alumina ratio 1/1 increase of the methanol partial pressure leads to an extremal increase in the formation rate of ethylene, propylene, and butylene while the formation rate of dimethyl ether increases monotonically. The yield of the olefins increases with increase of temperature on account of increase in the degree of transformation of the methanol while the dimethyl ether yield passes through a maximum. The results are explained by a kinetic scheme according to which the dimethyl ether and olefin formation follows different routes.
