One of the characteristics of Fischer-Tropsch synthesis and many oligomerization processes, is insufficient selectivity. Efforts have to be made to bring the products obtained in line with the market requirements. The olefin metathesis reaction has the potential to convert less desirable olefins to more useful ones and provides new ways of producing petrochemicals. Based on existing and suggested process technologies, applications of this reaction for the production of synthetic liquid fuels are discussed.
