Abstract

The ''ab initio'' quantum chemical calculations at MP2/6- 31++G**//HF/6-31G* level were performed for some elementary steps of isobutane cracking on zeolites. The results demonstrated that adsorbed carbonium ions represent not the observable reaction intermediates, but the high-energy transition states of the corresponding elementary reactions. Calculated activation energies are in reasonable agreement with experimental data
