2564. ------. [OWEN, J. J.] (Standard Oil Development Co.). [Synthesis of Oxygenated Organic Compounds.] French Patent 960,314, Apr. 17, 1950; appl. filed Oct. 15, 1947. Chem. Zentralb., 1951, I, p. 1070.

Olefins, CO, and H2 are reacted in the presence of metallic soaps such as Fe-, Co-, or Ni stearate, oleate, linoleate, or naphthenate. Example: Di-isobutylene (b. 101.7-102.8) is reacted with 1.2% Co stearate and 4.8% nonylalcohol and the mixture treated in presence of a catalyst consisting of Co and Cu oxide on pumice with synthesis gas at 162 and 210.9 atm. pressure. Mainly nonylaldehyde with other oxygenated compounds is obtained.
