2020 AFPM Summit - Specific surface area stability

Specific surface area stability: A key to prolonged optimum performance from naphtha reforming catalyst.

Published in Hydrocarbon Processing (2020) for the 2020 AFPM Summit.

Gamma-alumina’s textural properties. Gamma-alumina’s defect structure, surface acidity and high surface area make it extremely useful as an adsorbent, catalyst and catalyst support. The critical stage in its manufacture as a catalyst support for naphtha reforming catalysts lies in the control of its specific surface area and the concomitant distribution and activity of its inherent acid sites. A combination of calcination conditions and subsequent treatments sets these dependent variables during alumina manufacture. [...]
