The cracking tests of alkylbenzene have been conducted on quartz-glass plug-flow reactor, in order to clear the effect of oxygen concentration on production rate of benzene. The production rate of benzene from alkylbenzene was represented by Arrhenius equation. The test results of alkylbenzenes suggested that the production rate of benzene was proportional to the initial concentration of alkylbenzene and the square of oxygen concentration. The production rate of benzene from ethylbenzene was higher than that from toluene. As for the cracking products from ethylbenzene and toluene, the plug flow reactor results coincide with the engine test.
