Abstract
The addition of 10 percent depleted uranium oxide to F-10 alumina and to cobalt molybdate increased the hydrocracking activity of these catalysts, permitting the use of lower operating temperatures to attain the same degree of conversion. At operating temperatures below about 940 degrees F with uranium oxide on cobalt molybdate and about 990 degrees F with uranium oxide on alumina, the increases in conversion caused increases in gasoline yields. At higher temperatures, the uranium-containing catalysts lost their advantage for gasoline production because of increased conversion of products to gas. These results suggest an investigation be made of depleted uranium for hydrogasification of heavy oils to produce pipeline gas.
