Ring enlargement and/or aromatization accompany the hydrogenative ring opening of propylcyclobutane over Pt/SiO2, Rh/SiO2 and Pd/SiO2 catalysts at high temperature. Ring enlargement provides only methylcyclohexane, while toluene and benzene are the products of aromatization. Both reactions occur over Pt/SiO2, whereas only aromatization takes place over the other two catalysts. Increasing hydrogen pressure favours direct methylcyclohexane formation, while under relatively hydrogen-poor conditions it forms via secondary pathways. Benzene formation is favoured by temperature increase and is probably due to the demethylation of adsorbed toluene-like species.
