Conversion of pentane to isopentane and isopentane to isobutane catalyzed by a solid superacid in the vapor phase /1/

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.
