The aim of this thesis is to measure diffusion and adsorption of hydrocarbons under reaction and non-reaction conditions in a jetloop reactor using a pulse technique. The jetloop is a recycle reactor approximating a CSTR. Cumene cracking to benzene and propene was chosen as test reaction. A key question in this thesis was, whether model parameters are theoretically measurable and what errors can be expected and how this information is applied in practice.
