Abstract: In this paper, the study of the removal of mercaptans (known as thiols) from two types of oil cuts, L-SRG and L-naphtha from the Isfahan refinery was studied using a synthesized Cu (II) -X type zeolite in a batch system The effect of three parameters, ion-exchange copper loading percent, mass of absorbent per volume of oil cut and time, on removal of mercaptan (RSH) was investigated at ambient temperature. The numbers of experiments were minimized using the Taguchi method. Four levels making an orthogonal array L16 were selected for each parameter. It was observed that removal of sulfur was strongly influenced by selected parameters
