    Abstract

    Though light cycle oils (LCO) obtained in the fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) are rich in aromatics and sulphur but are insufficient to diesel fuels due to the low cetane number. It is worthwhile to produce alkylbenzenes from LCO without producing small olefinic hydrocarbons through hydrotreating polyaromatic compounds present in the LCO. In the present study tetralin was used as a model compound. Reactions such as ring opening, dealkylation, transalkylation, hydrogen transfer and coke formation were studied using Platinum-supported beta as catalyst. The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between the crystal size of beta zeolite and catalytic properties for hydrotreatment of tetralin.
