Abstract

A new reductive dimerization and oligomerization reaction of (C5 and C6) cycloalkanols and cycloalkanones, benzaldehyde, and benzyl alcohol to hydrocarbons containing as many, or more, carbon atoms as the reactant oxygenated compound on a promoted, fused iron catalyst proceeds at a temperature of 250–350°C, a hydrogen pressure of 0.1–1 MPa, a specific feed rate of oxygenated reagent of 80–320 g h−1kg−1Ct, and a hydrogen space velocity of 1 × 103 to 20 × 103 h−1. Possible reaction mechanisms have been considered.
