Selective conversion of butane into liquid hydrocarbonfuels on alkane metathesis catalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report a selective direct conversion of n-butane into higher molecular weight alkanes (C5+) by alkane metathesis reaction catalysed by silicaalumina supported tungsten or tantalum hydrides at moderate temperature and pressure. The product is unprecedented, asymmetrically distributed towards heavier alkanes.
