Pochen Chu, Michael E Landis, Quang N Le: Production of ethylbenzene. Mobil Oil, Alexander J McKillop, Dennis P Santini, Edward F Kenehan Jr, August 2, 1994: US05334795 (87 worldwide citation)

Ethylbenzene is produced by the alkylation of benzene with ethylene in the presence of an alkylation catalyst having a particular structure defined by its X-ray diffraction pattern. A preferred catalyst is the zeolite MCM-22. The process is typically carried out at a temperature of 300.degree. to 10 ...

William E Garwood, Quang N Le, Stephen S Wong: High viscosity index lubricants. Mobil Oil Corporation, Alexander J McKillop, Charles J Speciale, Malcolm D Keen, December 4, 1990: US04975177 (69 worldwide citation)

Lubricant basestocks of high viscosity index, typically with V.I. of at least 130 or higher, and low pour point, typically below 5.degree. F., are produced by hydroisomerizing petroleum waxes such as slack wax or de-oiled wax, over zeolite beta and then dewaxing to target pour point. A preferred pro ...
