Title: Conversion of acetone and/or alcohol(s) to alcohol(s) and/or aliphatic hydrocarbons

Abstract

A process for the production of saturated or unsaturated aliphatic alcohols and/or hydrocarbons includes condensing acetone and/or alcohol(s) to form one or more carbonyl compounds, and hydrogenating and/or hydrodeoxygenating at least one of the one or more carbonyl compounds to form the saturated or unsaturated alcohol(s) and/or hydrocarbons. In some embodiments, the condensation of acetone and/or alcohol(s) may be carried out in the presence of a solid acid catalyst and a transition metal catalyst. The saturated or unsaturated aliphatic alcohols and/or hydrocarbons may include one or more saturated linear C9 alcohols, C9 alkanes and/or one or more mono-unsaturated C9 alkenes.
