Title: Oligomerization of ethanol-derived propene and isobutene mixtures to transportation fuels: catalyst and process considerations

Abstract

An important activity/selectivity trade-off occurs at increased olefin oligomerization temperatures. Jet-range product decreases and paraffin formation increases at high oligomerization temperatures.
