This paper describes the problem of a high content of n-propylbenzene as an undesirable component of the product mixture in the process of liquid-phase alkylation of benzene with propylene at one of the Russian refineries. The unit was monitored and technological parameters influencing the content of n-propylbenzene were identified. A mathematical model of the alkylation process has been developed and, on its basis, a computer modeling system "Alkylation" in the Borland Delphi 7 environment, which allows calculating the composition of the product flow when the most important technological parameters of the reactor change (temperature, benzene: propylene molar ratio, feedstock flowrate).
