dc.description.abstractHeterogeneous catalysts can be used to speed or direct a reaction to produce desired products. Various properties of a catalyst, including surface chemistry, need to be determined experimentally before a catalyst can be used. The purpose of this research was to find a reliable method to characterize the surface chemistry of catalysts. Here hexane isomerization was used. The results reveal a clear distribution of products in the exit gases in the experimental situation. This research has provided a reliable method of finding the surface acidity of a catalyst.
