United States Patent: 6727289

We've earlier documented that Carbon Monoxide can be catalytically condensed, via reactions with Water, H2O, and thus be chemically transformed into liquid hydrocarbons.

 

A few examples of that reportage would include:

 

Standard Oil Carbon Monoxide + Water = Gasoline | Research & Development; wherein is described: "United States Patent 4,559,363 - Process for Reacting Carbon Monoxide and Water; 1985; Claims:  A method for the production of hydrocarbons by reacting carbon monoxide and water"; and:

 

Pittsburgh 1951 Carbon Monoxide + Water = Hydrocarbons | Research & Development; which discloses: "United States Patent 2,579,663 - Process of Synthesizing Hydrocarbons; 1951; A ... process for synthesizing hydrocarbons; more particularly the invention relates to a process for synthesizing normally liquid hydrocarbons from carbon monoxide and steam".

Catalytic steam-carbon monoxide synthesis oxygen-containing compounds

As in:

Pittsburgh 1951 Carbon Monoxide + Water = Hydrocarbons | Research & Development; concerning: "United States Patent 2,579,663 - Process of Synthesizing Hydrocarbons; 1951; Assignee: Gulf Research and Development Company, Pittsburgh; Abstract: This invention relates to a process for synthesizing hydrocarbons; more particularly the invention relates to a process for synthesizing normally liquid hydrocarbons from carbon monoxide and steam";

we have previously documented that liquid hydrocarbon fuels can be synthesized via seemingly-direct reactions between Carbon Monoxide and Water.

United States Patent Application: 0100105962

As accessible via: Saudi Arabia Coverts CO2 to Fuel | Research & Development; we some time ago reported, via exposition of: "United States Patent Application Publication Number US2010/0190874A1;

Catalytic Hydrogenation of Carbon Dioxide into Syngas Mixtures; July 29, 2010; Inventors: Agaddin Mamedov, Texas, and Abdulaziz Al-Jodai, et. al., Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Abstract: The invention relates to a process of making a syngas mixture containing hydrogen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide comprising a step of contacting a gaseous feed mixture containing carbon dioxide and hydrogen with a catalyst (thus enabling) hydrogenation of carbon dioxide (and which process can be) integrated with other ... synthesis processes for making ... alcohols"; that:

Yo! Save the Trees!

First, we remind you of some earlier posts, one example being:

Scientists Convert Coal Ash to Cement | Research & Development; which includes the report: "New Use for Coal Ash: Material Provides Strong and Lightweight Alternative to Concrete – without Cement";

wherein it was demonstrated that fly ash from Coal-fired power plants could be utilized in the formulation of a lighter-weight substitute for traditional, Portland-type, cement-based concrete in some building and structural applications.

United States Patent: 4345989

Buried deep within this Exxon exposition of Coal liquefaction technology is the statement, which won't be repeated in our fuller excerpts:

"Tetralin has a donatable hydrogen concentration of about 3.0 weight percent and is therefore an extremely good hydrogen-donor solvent."

That is the only place that Tetralin, the hydrogenated derivative of the primary Coal oil, Naphthalene, which we believe, as indicated to us, for one example, in:

WVU Hydrogenates Coal Tar | Research & Development; concerning: "Hydrogenation of Naphthalene and Coal Tar Distillate; Abhijit Bhagavatula; West Virginia University, 2009";
