Abstract The stability of supported Re 2 O 7 metathesis catalysts during the metathesis of propene has been studied in a micro catalytic flow reactor. Promoting the metathesis catalysts with alkyltin compounds led to a large increase in activity, but the stability of the catalyst decreased considerably. The stability of the catalysts appeared to be influenced to a large degree by the choice of support: a 3 wt.% Re 2 O 7 /SiO 2 ·Al 2 O 3 catalyst promoted with tetraethyltin proved to be much… CONTINUE READING
