Double catalyst for the direct conversion of syngas to lower olefins

Double catalyst for the direct conversion of syngas to lower olefins 21 March 2016 The light olefins ethylene, propylene, and butylene—usually made from petroleum—are key building blocks for chemical industry, and are starting materials for making plastics, synthetic fibers, and coatings. In the journal Angewandte Chemie , Chinese scientists report on a new bifunctional catalyst that converts syngas to lower olefins (C2 -C4 ) with high selectivity. This could make it more attractive to make olefins from alternative sources of carbon, such as biomass, natural gas, or coal. The design of bifunctional catalysts could result in further breakthroughs in developing one-step processes for selective production of fuels and chemicals such as gasoline, diesel, and aromatics from synthesis gas. Currently, the production of lower olefins primarily involves the thermal cracking of ligh...
