Abstract:
A process for producing p-xylene comprises (a) providing a C8-feedstock contg. at least 10% of C8-paraffinic hydrocarbons to a reforming reaction zone that contains a reforming catalyst comprising a medium pore zeolite having a silica to alumina mole ratio of at least 200, and a crystallite size of < 10 µm, (b) contacting the C8-feedstock under reforming reaction conditions in the reforming reaction zone to produce p-xylene and m-xylene at a p-xylene/m-xylene ratio of at least 0.9, and (c) sepg. p-xylene from m-xylene.  The process produces p-xylene at greater than thermodn. equil. concns.
