Title: A PROCESS FOR PREPARING ALKENE FROM ALKANE
Abstract:
The present disclosure provides a process for dehydrogenation of a feed comprising at least one aikane selected from the group consisting of n-butane and isobutane to obtain at least one compound selected from the group consisting of 1-butene, cis-2-butene, trans-2-butene, isobutene and combinations thereof, said process comprises reacting the feed with at least one hydrogen acceptor in the presence of at least one pincer ligated iridium catalyst in a non-reactive medium at a temperature in the range of 100°C to 250°C. The dehydrogenation is carried out at lower temperature and yield is higher.
