Abstract:
The search for a low-cost process for the valorization of linear alpha-olefins combining high productivity and high selectivity is a longstanding goal for chemists. Herein, we report a soluble ruthenium olefin metathesis catalyst that performs the conversion of linear alpha-olefins to longer internal linear olefins with high selectivity (>99%) under neat conditions at low loadings (50 ppm) and without the need of expensive additives. This robust catalytic process allowed us to efficiently and selectively re-equilibrate the naphtha fraction (C-5-C-8) of a Fischer-Tropsch feed derived from non petroleum resources to a higher-value product range (C-9-C-14), useful as detergent and plasticizer precursors.
