Ethene homologation reaction to give propene (3C2H4 → 2C3H6) was examined on reduced molybdena silica (MoO3/SiO2) catalyst at initial ethene pressure around 14.66 kPa (110 mmHg) and a temperature of 30 °C. In the very first stage of the ethene homologation reaction, induction period was observed as well as previous results reported in the references. During the induction period, ethene dimerization providing 1-butene was preferentially occurred. In addition, it was indicated that isomerization… Expand


One Step Formation of Propene from Ethene or Ethanol through Metathesis on Nickel Ion-loaded Silica
Increased propene production is presently one of the most significant objectives in petroleum chemistry. Especially the one-step conversion of ethene to propene (ETP reaction, 3C2H4 → 2C3H6) is theExpand
Reactive intermediates for the ethene homologation reaction on molybdena–silica catalysts
Ethene has been selectively homologated to propene (3CC → 2CC—C) on reduced molybdena–silica at room temperature. The initial homologation activity was enhanced by grafting the methylene species onExpand
Kinetics and catalytic studies of ethene homologation over silica-alumina supported reduced MoO3 catalysts
Abstract Silica-alumina (28.61% Al2O3) supported reduced MoO3 catalysts were found to be most active and selective for ethene homologation at a sufficiently low partial pressure of H2 in theExpand
Attempt to yield light hydrocarbons including C3 fraction by supplying ethene and syngas on Co/SiO2 catalyst
When a 1:2 gas mixture of CO and H2, namely syngas, was contacted onto Co/SiO2 catalyst at 513 K with low pressure such as 0.2 kg/cm2, G, methanation was preferentially promoted, whereas chainExpand
Selective Dimerization of Ethylene to 1-Butene with a Porous Catalyst
It is reported that a metal–organic framework catalyzes ethylene dimerization with a combination of activity and selectivity for 1-butene that is premier among heterogeneous catalysts. Expand
Ethylene homologation reaction in the presence of metathesis on MoOx/SiO2 catalyst: Selectively promoted by adding copper
Abstract The active MoOx species in MoO3/SiO2 catalysts for the ethylene homologation reaction (3C2H4θ2C3H6) was examined in comparison with those for the ethylene metathesis reactionExpand
Homologation of n-alkanes on metal films. A novel aspect of metal—carbene chemistry
A novel highly selective reaction has been discovered in the catalytic conversion of n-alkanes in hydrogen on unsintered tungsten films at 420 K. In addition to hydrocracking, substantial formationExpand
Homologation of ethylene without metathesis on silica supported ruthenium catalyst
A 1:1 mixture of 12C2-C2H4 (H2C=CH2) and 13C2-C2H4 (H213C=13CH2) was contacted on Ru/SiO2at 200oC. Propylene (homologation) was observed without 13C1-C2H4 formation (metathesis reaction). This mightExpand
Insights into the Reaction Mechanism of Cyclohexane Oxidation Catalysed by Molybdenum Blue Nanorings
Molybdenum blue (MB), is a polyoxometalate with a nanoring structure comprising Mo5+–O–Mo6+ bridges, which is active for the catalytic oxidation of cyclohexane to cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone.Expand
A general aspect of catalytic hydrogenation and isomerization reactions on oxide catalyst: Characteristics of the reactions via ionic and nonionic intermediates
Hydrogenation and isomerization reactions taking place on oxide and/or on sulfide catalysts are divided into two types depending on the intermediates being either ionic or nonionic. The reactions viaExpand
