Abstract

original image

A highly selective catalyst based on mesoporous zeolites for the production of C5–C11 isoparaffins from syngas has been developed. The selectivity to C5–C11 hydrocarbons over Ru/meso-ZSM-5 reaches about 80 % with a ratio of isoparaffins to n-paraffins of 2.7:1. The mesoporous structure and the unique acidity of meso-ZSM-5 play key roles in tuning the product selectivity by controlling the secondary hydrocracking reactions.
