GAS PHASE OZONE-MEDIATED SELECTIVE OXIDATIVE DEHYDROGENATION OF ALKANES
Inventors: Ive Hermans, William McDermott, Edgard Lebron Rodriguez, Unni Kurumbail
An improved ODH method for the conversion of alkanes (e.g., propane) to alkenes (e.g., propylene) that leverages an oxygen-atom donor. Essentially, the method is radical-mediated, requiring only a small concentration of initiator (ozone) to propogate the reaction of air-derived oxygen and propane to produce propylene.
