Heterogeneous Catalysts For The Oxidative Dehydrogenation Of Alkanes Or Oxidative Coupling Of Methane
WARF: P170243US01

Inventors: Ive Hermans, William McDermott, Joseph Grant, Juan Venegas, Somphonh Phivilay

The Invention
Improved methods of oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) of short chain alkanes or ethylbenzene to the corresponding olefins, and improved methods of oxidative coupling of methane (OCM) to ethylene and/or ethane, are disclosed. The disclosed methods use boron- or nitride-containing catalysts, and result in improved selectivity and/or byproduct profiles than methods using conventional ODH or OCM catalysts.
