Abstract

The effect of hafnia on acidic and hydroisomerization activity of n-hexadecane was studied using anions, e.g., tungstate and sulfate promoted with platinum. Diffuse FTIR pyridine adsorption technique was used to estimate the relative amount of Brönsted and Lewis acids present in the catalysts. Activity and selectivity of hafnia catalysts were compared with zirconia-tungstate catalysts. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2012 AIChE Spring Meeting and 8th Global Congress on Process Safety (Houston, TX 4/1-5/2012).
