Iridium Catalyst for Dehydrogenative Dimerization of Ethylene to Yield 1,3-Butadiene
Schematic diagram of the catalytic dehydrogenative dimerization of ethylene to butadiene
1,3-Butadiene is a chemical building block, most notably known for the production of synthetic elastomers and polymers. Traditionally, 1,3-butadiene is produced as a byproduct of naphtha cracking for ethylene production. Due to new sources,...
