2463.     NIENBURG, -----.  [Transformation of a Synthetic Olefin Into Oxo-Alcohols.]  FIAT Reel R-20, frames 7571-7580, Dec. 30, 1941; PB 73,564.

        Report from the I. G. Farbenindustrie Ammonia Laboratory, Oppau, deals with tests on conversion of synthetic olefins into Oxo-alcohols and on separation of these from unsaponifiable matter by the boric acid ester method.  Separation and fractionation proved to be difficult and incomplete.  The essential result is that 30% of the olefins and the alcohols derived from them showed a branch structure.  Numerous tables are presented.
