Title: HIGH TEMPERATURE METATHESIS PROCESS
Abstract:
The invention provides a high temperature metathesis process for the metathesis of Fischer-Tropsch olefins in the C5 to C15 range, said metathesis process including the step of subjecting a Fischer-Tropsch olefin feedstock in the C5 to C15 range to metathesis reaction conditions, said olefin feedstock including mono-methyl branched olefins. The invention also provides alkyl benzenes (AB's), drilling fluids and oxo-alcohols produced from the products of the metathesis process.
