On the example of the synthesis of ethylbenzene, an approach to reaction network formalization was proposed. This approach consists in grouping the components according to their reactivity their reactivity with respect to a specific reaction. The values of compensation degrees of reactions as an indicator of components reactivity were calculated. The kinetic model of alkylation of benzene with ethylene and heavy alkylates transalkylation was developed. The proposed approach is promising for development of mathematical modeling of multi-component processes of oil refining and petrochemical industries.
