H-ZSM-11, the proton-exchanged form of ZSM-11 zeolite has been studied for conversion of n-pentane, n-hexane, n-heptane and a mixture of light paraffins to aromatic hydrocarbons, at 400–540 °C and WHSV=1 h−1, giving high selectivity to BTX (80%). The aromatic yields are apparently limited only by the hydrogen content of the feed and products.

H-ZSM-11, протонно-обмененную форму цеолита ZSM-11, исследовали в превращении н-пентана, н-гексана, н-гептана и смеси легких парафинов в ароматические углеводороды в интервале температур 400–540°C и при пространственных скоростях 1 час−1. Наблюдалась Высокая селективность к BTX (80%). Выход ароматики лимитируется лишь содержанием водорода на питании и в продуктах.
