High-temperature dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene
- 40 Downloads
The kinetics of the thermal dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene at 660–740° were investigated.
The yield of styrene on the ethylbenzene that reacted was 58% at 660° and 70–75% at 690dg and 720dg.
The activation energy for the dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene was calculated; the value obtained was 44 ±2 kcal/mole.
