Abstract

Availability and low cost of light alkanes make them interesting as feedstock for commercial fuels and chemicals. However, direct conversion of lower alkanes for such purposes is a challenging problem. A discussion covers the oxidative conversion of light alkanes in the presence of cold plasma in a microreactor; variables influencing products selectivities; characteristics of the plasma microreactor; formation of C-C bonds; and directly upgrading cheap low molecular weight alkanes to commercially useful fuels and/or feedstock materials for the chemical industry. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 42nd Loss Prevention Symposium (New Orleans, LA 4/6-10/2008).
