Modeling of Benzene with Ethylene Alkylation

Elena Khlebnikova, Irena Dolganova, Elena Ivashkina, and Stanislav Koshkin
Abstract—The paper considers the benzene alkylation with ethylene model development with the use of zeolite catalyst. A list of reactions occurring in the alkylation reactor was made and the thermodynamic possibility of determination of these reactions by the change of Gibbs energy was defined. The paper presents the hydrocarbons transformation scheme, which includes the grouping of components on the basis of their reactivity and the degrees of compensation values of the corresponding reactions. Drawing on the obtained data the authors developed the kinetic model of the alkylation of benzene with ethylene.

Index Terms—Alkylation, degree of compensation, modeling, zeolites.
