       As shown earlier, in the complete absence of CO, C2H4 with H2, under catalytic conditions, yields only C2H6, but in the presence of CO polymers and hydropolymers of odd and even number C atom hydrocarbons are formed.  A similar reaction between propene and 5.7-7.0% CO at 190 and atmospheric pressure of H2 with the previously described catalyst gives 85-90% conversion of the propene, of which 35% is C3H8; the yield of liquid condensate is 550-600 ml. per m.3.  The yield of butylenes is 2.7%, that of C4H10 2.6%.  The condensate freed of C3 and C4 products boils over a very wide range (30-325) and contains about 35% unsaturates, mostly of lower molecular weights.  After hydrogenation over Raney Ni 75% of the condensate B. 28-340, and contains about 12-14% each of C5, C7, C8, and C9 products, about 20% C6.  The C5-C6 fractions contain some branched-chain products (Raman method), possibly 2- and 3-methylpentane, while the rest are n-hydrocarbons C5-C7.
