Methane-olefin coupling using supported-nickel and solid superacid catalysts.

Bruce Gordon. Anderson
In this thesis, we have investigated the coupling of methane with olefins, such as ethylene and propylene using silica-supported nickel and sulphate-promoted zirconia-silica catalysts. Control experiments over hydrogen-reduced Ni/SiO$\sb2$ in which propylene was co-fed with helium rather than with methane resulted in increased propylene conversions and in an increase of the yields of propane, C$\sb2$'s and C$\sb4$'s. It was concluded that the production of C$\sb4$'s was due to homologation or metathesis reactions, rather than to...
