A catalyst to keep you from cracking up: The hydrocracking of anthracene was catalyzed by NiFe/HZSM-5 to produce ethyl biphenyl in yields as high as 34 % in the presence of water. Water in the reaction system could enhance C[BOND]C bond breakage and promote the isomerization and hydrogen transfer reactions. The liquid product yields in the hydrocracking of the Daqing residue oil could also increase in the presence of water, which is consistent with the hydrocracking of anthracene.
