The isomerization-disproportionation conversion of straight-run gasoline over the Co/HZSM/SO42--ZrO2 (SZ) composite catalytic system at atmospheric hydrogen pressure has been studied. Optimal process conditions (1800С; Н2/СН=3; WHSV = 2.5 h-1) was established, under which the conversion of С8+ hydrocarbons is 77.3%, and the sum of high-octane gasoline components С5–С6 alkanes increases from 11% to 61%. Тhe effect of C4-, C5–C6 products and H2O on this isomerization-disproportionation process have been studied. It is shown that, unlike the main C5–C6 products, side C4-products affect the stability of the process, and the catalyst is deactivated under the water's influence. Comparative studies of the conversion of a mixture of straight-run gasoline and C2H5OH showed that H2O vapor formed sites deactivate the centers located on the SZ. It has been established that the mechanism of isomerization-disproportionation conversion of straight-run gasoline with the participation of a composite catalytic system is realized through the conjugated interaction of red-ox centers contained on SZ with acid-base centers of Co/HZSM-5, responsible, respectively, for the formation of intermediate compounds [С4+C7] and their and their further hydro cleavage
