A comprehensive naphtha cracking kinetic model was developed and regressed for cracking naphthas on blends of Y and ZSM-5 catalysts.  The model accounted for 13 reaction classes comprising 360 reactions applied to 37 lumps consisting of saturates, olefins, naphthenes and aromatics.  The compensation effect was used to simplify the regression.
