General description

Decane is an organic solvent. Bifunctional conversion of decane over Pt/ZSM-22, Pt/ZSM-5 and Pt/USY catalysts was compared. Structure of single-phase (sodium di-2-ethylsulfosuccinate)/D2O/decane microemulsions was investigated by small-angle neutron scattering.

Application

Decane was used as solvent to investigate the self-association of cyclohexanols.

The one-step transformation of C(7)-C(12) linear alkanes into more valuable oxygenates provides heterogeneous catalysis with a major challenge. In evaluating the potential of a classic mixed-metal-oxide catalyst, we demonstrate new insights into the reactivity of adsorbed oxygen species. During the...

Aromatic hydrocarbons are among the most important building blocks in the chemical industry. Benzene, toluene and xylenes are obtained from the high temperature thermolysis of alkanes. Higher alkylaromatics are generally derived from arene-olefin coupling, which gives branched products--that is, secondary...
