1739. KEULEMANS, A. I. M., KWANTES, A., AND VAN BAVEL, T. [Structure of Formylation (Oxo) Products Obtained From Olefins and Water Gas.] Rec. Trav. Chim., vol. 67, 1948, pp. 298-308; British Abs., 1949, A. II, p. 2; Chem. Abs., vol. 42, 1948, p. 8152.
Formylation of olefins by means of CO and H2 at 120°-160° and 100-200 atm. in presence of the Fischer-Tropsch Co catalyst is studied with 16 alkenes containing 3-8 C, cyclopentene, and cyclohexene. The aldehydes formed are immediately hydrogenated in the same autoclave with pure H2 to alcohols. Analysis of the products of reaction is simplified if the alcohols are dehydrated by pyrolysis of their stearates, and the olefins obtained are hydrogenated to alkanes.
