Title: ISOMERIZATION CATALYSTS
Abstract:
Disclosed is a catalyst formulation including a formed mass including a metal oxide, a metal hydroxide or a combination thereof, where the formed mass has Hg pore volume of at least 0.35 cc/g to about 1.0 cc/g as measured by mercury intrusion porosimetry. Also disclosed is a method of isomerization including contacting 1-butene with the catalyst formulation to form a 2-butene. Also disclosed is a method of forming propylene including contacting 2-butene with ethylene in the presence of the catalyst formulation and a metathesis catalyst to produce propylene. Also is disclosed a method of forming propylene including contacting a feed stream containing n-butene, n-pentene, or mixtures thereof with ethylene in the presence of the catalyst formulation and a metathesis catalyst to produce propylene. Also is disclosed, a method of isomerization including contacting 3-hexene with the catalyst formulation to form a mixture of 1-hexene, 2-hexene, and 3-hexene.
