This invention relates to a new process for the direct conversion of natural gas or methane into gasoline-range hydrocarbons (i.e., synthetic transportation fuels or lower olefins) via catalytic condensation using superacid catalysts.

US 4,465,893 OXIDATIVE CONDENSATION OF NATURAL GAS OR METHANE INTO GASOLINE RANGE HYDROCARBONS — Olah, George A; August 14, 1984
This invention relates to a new process for the direct conversion of natural gas or methane into gasoline range hydrocarbons (i.e., synthetic transportation fuels or lower olefins) via catalytic condensation using superacid catalysts.

US 4,467,130
CONDENSATION OF NATURAL GAS OR METHANE INTO GASOLINE-RANGE HYDROCARBONS  — Olah, George A.; August 21, 1984
This invention relates to a new process for the direct conversion of natural gas or methane into gasoline-range hydrocarbons (i.e., synthetic transportation fuels or lower olefins) via catalytic condensation using superacid catalysts.

US 4,472,268
UPGRADING OF NATURAL GASOLINE WITH TRIFLUOROMETHANE SULFONIC ACID, HYDROFLUORIC ACID AND LEWIS ACID CATALYST — Olah, George A; September 18, 1984 (to El Paso Products Company)
Natural gasoline of low octane value derived from natural gas is upgraded to higher octane value by means of a liquid ternary catalyst comprising trifluoromethanesulfonic acid and hydrogen fluoride in conjunction with a Lewis acid of the formula MX.sub.n wherein M is selected from Group III-A, IV-B or V elements of the Periodic Table, x is a halogen and n is a number varying from 3 to 6. Effective upgrading is achieved when the Lewis acid:HF mole ratio of the catalyst ranges from 1:2 to 2:1 at temperatures less than about 120.degree. C. under liquid phase conditions.

US 4,513,164  CONDENSATION OF NATURAL GAS OR METHANE INTO GASOLINE RANGE HYDROCARBONS — Olah, George A.; April 23, 1985
This invention relates to a new process for the direct conversion of natural gas or methane into gasoline-range hydrocarbons (i.e., synthetic transportation fuels or lower olefins) via catalytic condensation using superacid catalysts.

US 4,613,723  PROCESS FOR EFFECTING HYDROCARBON ISOMERIZATION OR ALKYLATION — Olah, George A.; September 23, 1986 ( to PCUK-Produits Chimiques Ugine Kuhlmann)
The present invention relates to supported superacidic catalysts comprising C.sub.4 -C.sub.18, preferentially C.sub.6 to C.sub.12, perfluorinated alkanesulfonic acid absorbed on suitable supports, such as fluoridated alumina, alumina silica and other chalcides having bonded thereto subsequently a Lewis acid compound selected from the higher valency fluorides of the elements of Groups IIA, IIIA, IVB, VA or VIB of the Periodic Table. The invention includes a process for catalytic transformation of hydrocarbons.

US 5,073,674  ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE CATALYTIC ALKYATION USING LIQUID ONIUM POLY (HYDROGEN FLUORIDES) — Olah, George A.; December 17, 1991
A process for alkylating an aliphatic hydrocarbon having isobutane with an alkenyl hydrocarbon with isobutylene in the presence of a liquid onium polyhydrogen fluoride complex as the reaction medium and catalyst at a temperature between -20.degree. and 70.degree. and pressure between atmospheric and 200 psi and at a time sufficient to form a high octane alkylate thereof.
