Patent Number: US 8080695
Title: Method of synthesizing higher-molecular alcohol
Inventor(s): Tsuchida, Takashi; Sakuma, Shuji
Patent Assignee(s): Kabushiki Kaisha Sangi, Japan
Source: U.S. Pat. Appl. Publ., 9 pp., Cont.-in-part of Appl. No. PCT/JP2005/022217. CODEN: USXXCO
Language: English

The production method with which high mol. alcs. having an even number of C atoms such as 1-butanol, hexanol, octanol and decanol, and a mixture of these are efficiently collected through clean processes using EtOH as a raw material. High mol. alcs. are produced from EtOH by using Ca phosphate-based compds. such as hydroxyapatite Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2, tricalcium phosphate Ca3(PO4)2, Ca monohydrogen phosphate CaHPO4.(0-2)H2O, Ca diphosphate Ca2P2O7, octacalcium phosphate Ca8H2(PO4)6.5H2O, tetracalcium phosphate Ca4(PO4)2O or amorphous Ca phosphate Ca3(PO4)2.nH2O as a catalyst, using EtOH as a starting material, and setting a contact time at 0.4 s or longer.
