Reaction network of the H2SO4-catalysed alkylation of isobutane. where DMC4: dimethylbutanes; MC5: methylpentanes; DMC5: dimethylpentanes; TMC5: trimethylpentanes; MC6: methylhexanes; DMC5: dimethylhexanes; I7(8,9,10,11): isomers of hydrocarbons C7(8,9,10,11); i-C4+: isobutyl cations; i-C12+: isododecyl cations; MC6+: methylhexanes (cations); TMC5+: trimethylpentanes cations; i-C4=: isobutene; 1-C4H8: butene-1; 2-C4H8: butenes-2; i-C4H10: isobutanes; i-C5H12: isopentanes; i-C4: isobutanes; n-C4: butanes; i-C5H12: isopentanes. The pseudocomponent “polymers” refers to the high molecular weight products of alkene polymerisation, as well as all undesired high molecular weight compounds formed during the alkylation process.
