Title: HYDROCARBON CONVERSION PROCESS
Abstract:
The invention provides a hydrocarbon conversion process for converting olefins to longer chain hydrocarbons, the process using a catalyst system including a non-nickel transition metal derived catalyst and one or more ionic liquids at a reaction temperature of between 10°C and 130°C and a reaction pressure of up to 100 Bar. The hydrocarbon conversion process may be oligomerisation and trimerisation.
