New, low cost alternative for ethylene production

Scientists at Waseda University discovered a new reaction mechanism of performing OCM at a temperature as low as 150ºC. The novel catalytic reaction found in the study, which demonstrated both high yield and catalytic activity, was done in an electric field, and could provide a more cost-effective method of synthesizing ethylene in the future.

Their findings were published online in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C on January 22, 2018.
