Zeolite catalyst

Products separated using fractional distillation

2

Describe the method to crack long chain alkanes in the lab

LCA heated --> vaporise

Zeolite catalyst heated --> LCA pass over --> high temperature leads to cracking

Space above the catalyst so gases can pass freely over

Tube A collecing liquid products

Tube B collecting gaseous products
