Capillary condensation was found to accompany gas-phase catalytic reactions, in particular motor fuel hydrotreatment. Reaction conditions appear to differ significantly in large pores (filled with gas) and small ones (filled with liquid). Regarding capillary condensation we explain the “strange” dependences observed in this study or described in the literature. We have simulated jet fuel dearomatization taking into account capillary condensation as well.
