Process for the dehydration of aqueous bio-derived terminal alcohols to terminal alkenes

  • US Patent No. 9242226
  • Issued: January 26, 2016
  • Status: Active
Materials

A method and apparatus for dehydrating bio-1-alcohols to bio-1-alkenes with high selectivity. The bio-1-alkenes are useful in preparing high flashpoint diesel and jet biofuels which are useful to civilian and military applications. Furthermore, the bio-1-alkenes may be converted to biolubricants useful in the transportation sector and other areas requiring high purity/thermally stable lubricants.
