© Boardworks Ltd 2003 Industrial manufacture and uses of Alkenes
© Boardworks Ltd 2003 Alkenes Sources Crude oil contains many large molecules. If these are to be used as fuels or feedstock for the chemical industry then they have to be broken down (or cracked) into smaller molecules. Big molecules Small molecules Medium molecules
© Boardworks Ltd 2003 Catalytic Cracking Large hydrocarbons are broken into smaller molecules using heat and a catalyst. This process is known as catalytic cracking. The small molecules produced are then separated by distillation. Catalytic cracker Heat to vaporise Distillation tower pressure Big Molecules Smaller molecules Molecules break up
© Boardworks Ltd 2003 Catalytic Cracking In the catalytic cracker long chain molecules are split apart or ‘cracked’. An example of such a reaction is: C 8 H 18 C 6 H 14 + C 2 H 4 + ethene Octane hexane Ethene is used to make plastics Heat pressure catalyst Used as a fuel

Organic Chemistry Revision
Alkanes, Alkenes and Polymers
Cracking involves breaking down larger crude oil fractions into smaller more useful hydrocarbons. This reaction involves heating the crude oil fraction.
