Patent Number: US 8193387
Title: Producing an unsaturated carboxylic acid from an alkane and catalysts
Inventor(s): Hazin, Paulette N.; Galloway, Frederick Merrill; Ledford, John S.; Nuyen, Andy H.

Abstract:
A 1-step vapor phase oxidation process produces an unsatd. carboxylic acid, such as acrylic acid or methacrylic acid, from an alkane, such as propane or isobutane, with a mixed metal oxide catalyst and an excess of alkane relative to O. The unreacted alkane and the byproduct alkene are recycled to the reaction zone without separation. Overall yield and productivity of the unsatd. carboxylic acid improves for such a process. An analogous method for the preparation of unsatd. nitrites is also disclosed. Propane oxidation process at 400degrees/20 psig using 1 g MoV0.3Nb0.12Te0.23Ox catalyst for 0.23 s showed selectivity to acrylic acid 83.3%.

Please note:  Abstracts for patent records in CAplus are routinely enhanced to better describe the claimed invention.
