Abstract In this work, an industrial calcined Phillips CrO x /SiO 2 catalyst engaged in the induction period through interaction with ethene at ambient conditions was characterized by temperature-programmed desorption (TPD) equipped with a quadrupole mass spectrometer (MS). It was unprecedented to find that the first hydrocarbon species had already been formed and was observed to be propene instead of the expected butene. In fact, butene is the second hydrocarbon species formed after propene… CONTINUE READING
