  • Catalytic Cracking
    • Lower temperature
    • Lower pressure
    • Catalyst
      • Zeolite cataylst
        • Acidic
        • Honeycomb structure
        • Large surface area
      • Aluminium oxide
    • Products
      • Compared to thermal cracking the products are more cycloalkanes, aromatic compounds and branched alkanes where as thermal they are more alkenes
      • Separated by fractional distillation
