Alkane metathesis

goldman01Organoiridium complexes catalyze the dehydrogenation of alkanes and alkyl groups, a transformation with tremendous potential applicability. For example, alkane dehydrogenation in tandem with olefin metathesis results in alkane metathesis. This process may be applicable to Fischer-Tropsch product mixtures, to increase the overall yield of transportation fuel from carbon sources including coal and biomass.
