  • Patent number: 8017794
    Abstract: A process for the preparation of alkylene oxide, which process involves mixing fresh feed containing organic hydroperoxide and alkene with a recycle stream to obtain a reaction mixture containing of from 5 to 80% wt of alcohol, based on total amount of reaction mixture, contacting the reaction mixture with a heterogeneous epoxidation catalyst to obtain a stream containing alkylene oxide and alcohol, and recycling of from 30 to 95% wt of the stream obtained in step (ii) to step (i).
    Type: Grant
    Filed: October 13, 2010
    Date of Patent: September 13, 2011
    Assignee: Shell Oil Company

  • Patent number: 6974888
    Abstract: Process for preparing alkylaryl hydroperoxide containing product, which process comprises: (a) oxidation of an alkylaryl compound to obtain reaction product containing alkylaryl hydroperoxide, (b) contacting with water at least part of the alkylaryl hydroperoxide containing reaction product obtained in step (a) which reaction product contains less than 0.05 % wt of sodium, (c) separating the product of step (b) into a hydrocarbonaceous phase containing alkylaryl hydroperoxide and an aqueous phase, (d) optionally repeating process steps (b) and (c) one or more times, (e) contacting at least part of the hydrocarbonaceous phase containing alkylaryl hydroperoxide obtained in step (c) or (d) with olefin and catalyst to obtain alkylaryl hydroxide and oxirane compound, and (f) separating at least part of the oxirane compound from the alkylaryl hydroxide.
