Language: Japanese

Provided is a novel process for the prodn. of olefins, whereby it is possible to establish an industrially practical process for obtaining an olefin in a single step by reacting a ketone directly with H, in particular, a novel process for the prodn. of olefins, whereby propylene can be obtained with a high selectivity by direct reaction of acetone with H.  The process for the prodn. of olefins comprises reacting a ketone with H in the presence of both at least one dehydration catalyst and a Ag-contg. catalyst, said dehydration catalyst being selected from among: metal oxide catalysts contg. Group 6 elements; zeolite; alumina; and heteropolyacid salts which are each prepd. by replacing part or the whole of the protons of a heteropolyacid by metal cations.

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