Liquid phase separation of 1-butene from 2-butenes on all-silica zeolite RUB-41.


The all-silica zeolite RUB-41, containing 8- and 10-membered rings, is able to separate trans-2-butene and cis-2-butene from 1-butene and represents a possible improvement in isolating pure 1-butene from a butene mixture.
