It is pointed out that thermodynamic equilibrium among the n-paraffins yields a distribution that is qualitatively similar to that observed experimentally. Comprises general viewpoint set forth by Craxford, that product distribution is a result of some polymerization-depolymerization equilibrium in the last stages of the process and probably involves paraffin hydrocarbons.
