Pt, Ir, Pt-Ir and Pt-Ni bimetallic catalysts supported on NaY- and HY-zeolite were examined as a catalyst for producing gasoline from n-decane via simultaneous reforming and cracking. The catalysts were prepared by calcining and reducing metal-ion-exchanged Y-zeolite with O-2 and H-2 at 300 degrees C, respectively. Thus prepared catalysts were characterized by hydrogen chemisorption and temperature programmed desorption of ammonia. Pt-Ni/NaY and Pr-Ir/NaY bimetallic catalysts offered the improved activity maintenance compared to Pt/NaY monometallic catalyst. The catalysts supported on HY-zeolite showed higher selectivity toward C-5-C-7 and skeletal isomers of C-5-C-7 and C-6-C-10 than those of the catalysts supported on NaY-zeolite, which is a desired characteristic for increasing octane value of gasoline these days. However, deactivation with reaction time was much more pronounced on HY-zeolite-supported catalyst. When the catalyst was presulfided with H2S, the stability with time on stream was enhanced and the selectivity was quite different from that of the catalyst before presulfiding. The acidity of Y-zeolite and presulfiding of catalyst greatly influenced the activity, selectivity and stability of Pt, Ir, Pt-Ir and Pt-Ni bimetallic catalysts supported on Y-zeolite in n-decane reforming reaction.
