Title: NOBLE METAL HYDROGENATION CATALYSTS AND AROMATIC SATURATION METHODS
Abstract:
Methods are provided for modifying hydrogenation catalysts having silica supports (or other non-alumina supports) with additional alumina, and using such catalysts to achieve unexpectedly superior hydrogenation of feedstocks. The modified hydrogenation catalysts can have a relatively low cracking activity while providing an increased activity for hydrogenation.
