Abstract

The homogeneous oxidation of isopentane was studied in the vapor phase. The main products were oxygenated compounds (3-methyltetrahydrofuran, 2-propyloxirane, 2-ethyl-2-methyloxirane, 2,2,3-trimethyloxirane, acetone, and acetaldehyde) and isopentenes. The yields of oxygenated compounds and isopentenes depended on the residence time, indicating that the oxygenated compounds formed through isopentenes from isopentane. In the the vapor-phase oxidation of isopentenes (3-methyl-1-butene, 2-methyl-2-butene, and 2-methyl-1-butene), 3-methyltetrahydrofuran and 2-propyloxirane might be formed through 3-methyl-1-butene, 2,2,3-trimethyloxirane, and acetone through 2-methyl-2-butene, and 2-ethyl-2-methyloxirane through 2-methyl-1-butene in the vapor-phase oxidation of isopentane.
