Title: Zeolitic catalytic conversion of alcohols to olefins

Abstract

A catalyst composition for converting an alcohol to olefins, the catalyst composition comprising the following components: (a) beta zeolite; (b) at least one element selected from the group consisting of zinc, magnesium, calcium, strontium, sodium, and potassium; and (c) at least one element selected from the group consisting of hafnium, yttrium, zirconium, tantalum, niobium, and tin; wherein the components (b) and (c) are independently within or on a surface of said beta zeolite. The catalyst may also further include component (d), which is copper or silver. Also described herein is a method for converting an alcohol to one or more olefinic compounds, the method comprising contacting the alcohol with a catalyst at a temperature of at least 100° C. and up to 500° C. to result in the alcohol being converted to the one or more olefinic compounds.
