Catalytic conversion of butadiene to ethylbenzene overthe nanoporous nickel(II) phosphate, VSB-1

Author affiliations


The large-pore nickel(II) phosphate, VSB-1, shows excellent selectivity (>80%) for the dehydrocyclodimerization of butadiene to ethylbenzene at 400 °C; conversion to 4-vinylcyclohexene and oligomeric byproducts is <5% in each case.
