Chemist created a niobium-silica catalyst to boost petrochemical reactions

Catalyst reduces the time of alkylation reactions from several hours to just 10 minutes


Alkylation reactions are used in the petrochemical industry to obtain high-octane number components for gasolines. A chemist from RUDN University found a way to speed this process up to 24 times. To do so, he developed a catalyst based on silica and niobium. The results of his work were published ...

Turning alcohols into alkylating agents

Taking a cue from nature


Researchers at Princeton have developed a dual catalyst system that directly installs alkyl groups onto heteroarenes. The new reaction uses simple and abundant alcohols and offers a milder and more widely applicable alternative to existing strategies. The reported transformation is the first to ...
