Abstract

The title reactions were studied with a solid superacid, which was prepared by exposing Zr(OH)4 to 1 N H2SO4, followed by calcination at 650°C in air. Pentane and isopentane were converted into isopentane and isobutane, respectively, the selectivities being 84% under short contact conditions at 80°C.

Abstract

Заглавные реакции были исследованы с твердыми перекислотами, которые при-готовлялись обработкой Zr(OH)4 1 N-ой H2SO4 с поседуйщим обжигом при 650°C на воздухе. Пентан и изопентан превращалиь в изопент аи и изобутан, соответственно, с селективностью 84% при кортком контакте и при 80°C.
