Process For Isomerization and Decarboxylation of Unsaturated Organic Compounds With A Metal Catalyst or Catalyst Precursor

Agriculturally-derived fatty acids are directly converted into olefins, or other useful hydrocarbons. The process involves the use of a metal catalyst or catalyst precursor that facilitates the isomerization and/or decarboxylation of unsaturated carboxylic acids derivatives into olefins.


•  ~100% biobased content helps meet biobased formulation requirements
•  Useful as a drop-in for replacement for commercial polymers without modification of existing process



•  Biobased:
  - alkene for polymers such as linear low density
•  Polyethylene:
  - polyolefin plasticizer
