Abstract


The effects of temperature and hydrogen partial pressure on hydrocracking behavior of phenanthrene were investigated using Mo-mordenite catalyst. It was observed that phenanthrene conversion as well as benzene yield increased with reaction temperatures while xylene yield declined under elevated temperature. In addition, hydrogen partial pressure initiated negligible impacts on both benzene yield and xylene yield, however, the dependence of phenanthrene conversion on temperature varied with hydrogen partial pressure.
