The methanol-to-hydrocarbons reaction was first discovered in the laboratory of Mobil Company using a ZSM-5 catalyst [ 1 ]. Higher temperature and lower pressure were proved to have positive effects on the olefin
differentiation of interactions seems to be played in the first system by hydrophobic hydration and in the second one by selective solvation.
The further studies carried out in our laboratory have been devoted to interactions in methanol solutions [ 10

for binary mixtures of (TBP + methanol/ethanol) have been reported previously [ 13 ] to understand the molecular interactions existing in liquid mixtures. As a part of the systematic study, excess molar enthalpies for ternary mixtures of (TBP + water
In the present work, the radiolytic effects on hydroquinone in methanol solution at different doses of gamma irradiation,
were studied. The results show that the radiolytic effects are independent of the irradiation doses and that almost all compounds
are formed from the solvent radiolysis. Analysis of the resulting products were carried out by capillary gas chromatography
coupled to mass spectrometry. The identified compounds were linear hydrocarbons from C12 to C22, some branched hydrocarbons and phenolic substituted compounds.

Methanol is one of the largest demanding chemical in worldwide. In recent, methanol has attracted much attention as energy source because it is expected for using energy sector such as liquid fuel (methanol to
The activity of copper containing catalysts for the formation of methanol from CO and H2 is investigated by DSC measurement of the methanol decomposition. Calibration of the DSC signal can be performed by melting experiments with tin under reaction conditions. Comparison of catalysts is well possible by measurement of the standard activity at 240°, the apparent activation energy for the methanol decomposition reaction and the aging of the catalyst samples.
