Abstract

The methylation of toluene with methane in the presence of oxygen over zeolite catalysts is shown to be complicated by extensive disproportionation, hydrodealkylation, and hydrocracking reactions. However, it appears that these undesired reactions can be minimized, to enhance the methylation reaction, by using zeolites with reduced Bronsted acidity.
