View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
A process for alkylation of olefin-containing gases with low molecular weight branched alkanes to generate alkylate. The process involves the use of solid acid catalysts as alkylation catalysts. In a specific embodiment, the process employs a three-phase catalytic reactor where olefins present in the gas are reacted, preferably to extinction, with a large excess of liquid branched alkane.
