This paper presents an analysis of the oxidative dehydrogena-
tion of ethane on platinum-containing monoliths. The purpose of
the work is to make a quantitative assessment of the extent to which
homogeneous gas-phase reactions contribute to the overall conver-
sion of the ethane. In making the analysis, extensive use is made
of kinetic information obtained and compiled by A. M. Dean and
associates for elementary homogeneous reaction steps and by L. D.
Schmidt and associates for elementary surface reactions. A critical
part of the analysis is concerned with accounting for the heat effects
and for the reactor temperature gradient resulting therefrom. This
is absolutely essential for meeting the objective of this investigation.
