Although a reversible reaction can never be complete under ordinary conditions, if the products can be separated from the reacting mixtures the reaction should finally go to completion, and N. Itoh of the National Chemical Laboratory, Japan, has recently considered the decomposition of cyclohexane to benzene and hydrogen, using a platinum on alumina catalyst (AIChE J., 1987, 33, (9), 1576–1578). The hydrogen produced diffused out through the palladium wall of the reactor, and under the given conditions the conversion reached 99.7 per cent.
