The experimental results on naphtalene hydrogenation on a sulphided NiMo/gamma-Al2O3 catalyst were fitted well using a micro-kinetic model by accounting for competitive solvent chemisorption and also for the liquid phase non-ideality using fugacity coefficients obtained with the Peng-Robinson method. This methodology allows collecting experimental data at conditions corresponding to a gas phase, construct a kinetic model and then apply this model to conditions corresponding to the presence of both gas and liquid aggregation states. It is also applicable for different reaction systems.
