Reforming processes using platinum catalysts have become of major importance in petroleum refining during the past seven years. They enable the octane rating of naphthas to be greatly increased, and are more economical than any other refining process for the production of high octane gasoline. In this article the general nature of the processes is described and the Platforming process is considered in more detail.
