Provides a broad review of the state of the art of methodology of catalyst deactivation and testing in hydrocarbon conversion processes. Examines deactivation mechanisms for the major classes of heterogeneous catalysts used in the petrochemical industry. Provides valuable insights on how to
create effective, small-scale laboratory tests, and how to simulate catalyst deactivation in commercial processes. Discusses modeling of catalyst deactivation.
