Hydrocracking of methyldecalin over Pd/REX has been studied with surface sensitive techniques in the critical temperature range 325-350 degrees C. Results from in situ characterization of adsorbed species, and post-reaction analysis of the catalyst surface by infrared and photoemission spectroscopies, were related to product distributions. The results are discussed in light of quantum chemical calculations of free and catalyst bound intermediates, following ring-opening reactions. Liquid and gaseous products were detected by infrared and WNis spectroscopies. Apparent activation energies of product formation hydrogen consumption, over a broader temperature range, were derived from previous autoclave experiments.
