An investigation was made of the structures of the alkenes and aromatic hydrocarbons formed in the transformations of C6-C6 n-alkanes in presence of an alumina-chromia-potassia catalyst at 500° at a space velocity of 0.5hr−1.
The bulk of the alkenes formed corresponded in number of carbon atoms to the original hydrocarbons. The double bond occurred mainly in the 2-, 3-, or 4-position.
In the catalyzates of all the n-alkanes small amounts of dienes were found.
The bulk of the aromatic hydrocarbons formed corresponded in number of carbon atoms to the original alkanes. In addition, the octane and nonane catalyzates contained some lower-boiling aromatic hydrocarbons.
