Abstract

The methanol to aromatics conversion is shown to contribute significantly to the benzene methylation with methanol at 400 degrees Celsius over acidic ZSM-5 catalysts but such contribution over all catalysts is negligible at 250 degrees Celsius. Benzene-only conversion shows only negligible contribution at both temperatures over the catalysts studied. However, it appears that the methanol-only conversion can be minimised, to enhance the benzene methylation with methanol (and indirectly the oxidative benzene methylation with methane), by using NaZSM-5 with highly reduced Brönsted acidity.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
