In this paper, the details of catalytic activity for the reforming reaction of normal heptane and the effect of different parameters such as temperature (450-500 °C), pressure (15-30 atm), promoting effect of various metals (neodymium and lead) and their amounts on this reaction and also the amount of formed coke on catalyst surface was investigated. The amount of formed coke on the surface of these catalysts was studied by thermal gravimetric (TG/DTA) method. The results show that the formation of coke on bimetallic catalysts of Pt-(Pb, Nd)/γ-Al2O3 are lower than the monometallic catalysts. Furthermore, the bimetallic catalysts also show the high activity in this reaction.
