Abstract: Super acidic catalyst SO42-/ZrO2 was prepared and characterized by XRD，IR，and Py-IR. Selectively catalytic gas phase flow reactions of benzene and propene over the catalyst were carried out in a made-to-measure high pressure flow reactor with a thermometer and a condenser. The benzene and propene were kept in pressure tanks at 8 : 1 ratio with N2 gas at 4. 0 MPa. The reactants were pumped into the quantifier where the pressure was maintained by N2 gas at 8. 0 MPa. They were then pumped into the reaction reactor using catalytic synthesis of isopropyl benzene. The collected liquid phase products were analyzed using GC-MS. Product analyses were carried out on SE-54. The effect of the preparative condition on the catalytic synthesis of isopropyl benzene over the catalysts has been tested. The result shows that the SO42-/ZrO2 can be used as a catalyst for the title reaction，and shows higher conversion（99.2%）for the propene and higher selectivity（93.3%）for the isopropyl benzene when the catalyst is preparated in some condition.
