DGC-H-beta zeolite catalyst has higher activity and selectivity for the alkylation of isobutane with 1-butene in a CSTR. The cause of the deactivation of the catalyst and the optimum reaction conditions were investigated. Deactivation of the catalyst was caused not by adsorbed carbon species but by hydrocarbons formed by multiple alkylation or oligomerization of olefin. Optimized conditions to avoid these reactions achieved stable selective alkylation.
