  • Publication number: 20140031519
    Abstract: The invention relates to a catalyst for catalysing the polymerisation of epoxides, and which is to be improved such that it allows a more efficient reaction to be carried out. This is achieved by providing a catalyst obtainable by mixing a) at least one double metal cyanide compound, b) at least one organic complexing agent, and c) at least one primary alcohol with 6 to 24 C atoms. In addition, the invention relates to a method for the polymerisation of epoxides, and to the use of the claimed catalyst for the polymerisation of epoxides and the copolymerisation of epoxides with carbon dioxide.

  • Publication number: 20130143779
    Abstract: An ionic compound is represented by formula (1): AM(OY1)(OY2)(OY3)(OY4). A is a group 1 element. M is a group 13 element. Y1 is one selected from an oligoalkylene ether group, an oligoalkylene thioether group, and an oligoalkylene amino group and includes an electron donating group on carbon that is located in one of ?-? positions with respect to oxygen atom adjacent to M. Y2, Y3, and Y4 are the same each other or different from each other or cross-linked to each other. Y2, Y3, and Y4 are each any one of an alkyl group, an alkyl group with a fluorinated terminal, an aryl group, and one selected from the group consisting of an oligoalkylene ether group, an oligoalkylene thioether group, and an oligoalkylene amino group and including an electron donating group on carbon that is located in one of ?-? positions with respect to oxygen atom adjacent to M.

  • Publication number: 20130130892
    Abstract: Catalysts amenable to oxidizing sulfur compounds and systems and methods of using these catalysts to effect the removal of sulfur from crude oil and crude oil distillates are disclosed. The catalyst is disposed with a titanyl moiety which serves to selectively coordinate sulfur compounds and affect their oxidation. The titanyl may be bound within a polymer or on the surface of a polymer or on the surface or in the pores of an inorganic support. The resulting oxidized sulfur compounds are readily separated from the initial crude oil or crude oil distillate streams by traditional separation techniques arrayed as described in the systems and methods disclosed.
