We note in the reaction that the main molecules included in the process and explained that the transformations (Boukratem, 1997, 2003) are CH3Cl, C2Hand HCl. Other studies were led (Jaumain and Su, 2002; Wei et al., 2006) on the same subject. With these three elements, we constitute a mathematical development relating the thermodynamic study. The final equation what was found through the fundamentals is a good theoretical representation.


Key words: Thermodynamic, catalytic activity, zeolite, theoretical study, mechanism.
