Researchers from Caltech and UC San Diego report very high performance catalysts to convert seed oils to olefins

Green Car Congress

The ethanolysis of fatty acids derived from seed oils could provide a renewable source of LAOs. olefins (LAOs) and other terminal-olefin products. Researchers from Caltech and UC San Diego have developed a family of ruthenium-based metathesis catalysts that have shown exceptional activity in the conversion of seed oils to linear-chain olefins. In many cases, catalyst turnover numbers (TONs) of more than 100?,000 000 were achieved, at a catalyst loading of only 3 ppm.
