This research encompasses production of value added chemicals including benzene, ethylene , naphthalene etc from natural gas via nonoxidative conversion process. This process is a thermodynamically limited reaction. If co product hydrogen is Insitu removed, the equilibrium can be shifted to the right. 

The presentation will focus on investigations of a reactive separation method and pertinent findings. Over system model and approximate process economics will be discussed.
