The purpose of the present work is to show that light straight-run gasoline fraction can be used as feedstock for hydro-catalytic isomerization process, and the isomerized product can serve as a component for obtaining pure ecological commercial gasoline brand Euro-4 and Euro-5. Transformation of n-alkanes of Zhanazhol oil’s light gasoline fraction with boiling temperature 180°C was studied. Isomerization was carried out in a flow unit with a stationary layer of modified sample of industrial aluminum-platinum catalyst at 200-300°C and 2.0-4.0 MPa, with volume feed rate of 1.0-3.0 h-1 and circulation ratio of hydrogen containing gas circulation 1000-1500 m3/m3 of catalyst feed. Light gasoline fraction are subjected to a number of chemical transformations: n-paraffins isomerization, five-membered and six-membered cycloalkanes dehydroisomerization and hydrocracking. n-Alkanes are isomerized in iso-alkanes, naphthenic hydrocarbons are first subjected to hydrocracking with opening the cycle and forming n-alkanes, which are then isomerized into iso-alkanes. Thus, the reaction products contain isopentane, 2,3-dimethylbutane with octane number 92 and 104 correspondingly, and other iso-paraffinic hydrocarbons that lead to raise of gasoline octane number. By study of individual hydrocarbon composition of feedstock and isomerizate it is possible to establish some regularities hydrocarbons in the process of hydro-catalytic isomerization of light gasoline fraction.
