  • Not applicable.
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • This invention generally relates to ethylene oligomerization to alpha olefins.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Olefins, also commonly known as alkenes, are important items of commerce. Their many applications include employment as intermediates in the manufacture of detergents, as more environmentally friendly replacements where refined oils might otherwise be used, as monomers, and as intermediates for many other types of products. An important subset of olefins are olefin oligomers, and one method of making olefin oligomers is via oligomerization of ethylene, which is a catalytic reaction involving various types of catalysts.
  • Examples of catalysts used commercially in polymerization and oligomerization of olefins include alkylaluminum compounds, certain nickel-phosphine complexes, and a titanium halide with a Lewis acid, such as diethylaluminum chloride. Some examples of catalysts, and in particular transition metal catalysts, employed in ethylene polymerization and oligomerization may be found in U.S. Pat. Nos. 5,955,555, 6,103,946, WO 03/011876, U.S. 2002/0028941, WO 02/28805, and WO 01/58874, which are incorporated herein by reference.
  • Selective 1-hexene (S1H) catalysts are another example of catalysts employed in the production of olefins. S1H catalysts are designed to be selective for producton of 1-hexene. Examples of such S1H catalysts may be found in U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,455,648, 6,380,451, 5,986,153, 5,919,996, 5,859,303, 5,856,257, 5,814,575, 5,786,431, 5,763,723, 5,689,028, 5,563,312, 5,543,375, 5,523,507, 5,470,926, 5,451,645, and 5,438,027, which are incorporated herein by reference.
  • Applications and demand for olefin polymers and oligomers continue to multiply, and competition to supply them correspondingly intensifies. Thus, additional novel and improved catalysts, and methods of olefin polymerization and oligomerization, are desirable.

  • The particular combination of catalysts employed in a particular process design, such as, for example, those combinations and designs illustrated by FIGS. 2-4, may modify the distribution of product olefins in the effluent of an oligomerization process. Such a modification may cause the distribution of product olefins to vary from a typical Schulz-Flory distribution, and, therefore, also adjust the Schulz-Flory constant, or K-value associated with such a product olefin distribution. In an embodiment where an oligomerization catalyst system comprises a combination of catalysts, the product olefins of the oligomerization comprise a 1-hexene content of from about 20 to about 80 weight percent. In another embodiment, product olefins comprise a 1-hexene content of from about 50 to about 80 weight percent.
  • The lifetimes of the components of the oligomerization catalyst system may vary. For example, the lifetime of a catalyst including a metal complex may be different than the lifetime of an S1H-type catalyst. Thus, designing the oligomerization method as provided herein to account for such variances may be advantageous. In an embodiment, where the continuous reactor includes a tubular reactor, the oligomerization catalyst system is injected at more than one point along the length of the reactor. In another embodiment, a metal complex is injected at more than one point along the length of the reactor. In another embodiment, the oligomerization catalyst system and olefins are injected at more than one point along the length of the reactor.
  • The oligomerization provided may be a continuous process carried out in one or more reactors. In an embodiment, the reactor comprises a loop reactor, tubular reactor, continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR), or combinations thereof.
  • The oligomerization may be further characterized by the velocity of reaction components in the continuous reactor, and associated Reynolds numbers. In an embodiment, the continuous reactor may be a loop reactor where fluid flow in the loop reactor comprises a Reynolds number of from about 100,000 to about 1,000,000. In another embodiment, the continuous reactor may be a loop reactor where fluid flow in the loop reactor comprises a Reynolds number of from about 200,000 to about 700,000. In another embodiment, the continuous reactor may be a tubular reactor where fluid flow in the tubular reactor comprises a Reynolds number of from about 100,000 to about 10,000,000. In another embodiment, the continuous reactor may be a tubular reactor where fluid flow in the tubular reactor comprises a Reynolds number of from about 300,000 to about 2,000,000.
  • In various embodiments, the continuous reactor may be employed in the form of different types of reactors in combination, and in various arrangements. In an embodiment, the continuous reactor may be a combination of a tubular reactor and a CSTR. In other embodiments, the continuous reactor may be employed as reactors in series, reactors in parallel, or combinations thereof. In an embodiment, the continuous reactor may be more than one CSTR in series. In another embodiment, the continuous reactor may be a tubular reactor and a loop reactor in series.
  • It is known in the art that the temperatures associated with oligomerization may vary depending on the oligomerization catalyst system employed. For example, oligomerizations employing transition metal catalysts typically involve lower temperatures. Such lower reactor temperatures, however, may make precipitation of waxes and, therefore, plugging more problematic. Such waxes that cause plugging may be, for example, the insoluble portion of wax products from the oligomerization reaction that have at least 20 carbon atoms. The turbidity, or clarity of the reactor contents upon visual inspection may be an indicator of the presence of precipitated waxes. As the level of precipitated waxes in the reactor increases, the turbidity of the reactor contents also typically increases. Thus, lower reactor temperatures and potential increases in wax precipitation and plugging may be characteristic of oligomerization. In an embodiment, at least one oligomerization reactor comprises a temperature of from about 40 to about 150 degrees Celsius. In another embodiment, at least one reactor comprises a temperature of from about 40 to about 90 degrees Celsius. In another embodiment, at least one reactor comprises a temperature of from about 80 to about 150 degrees Celsius. In another embodiment, the contents of the reactor at steady state, even without substantial turbulence, are not turbid.
  • A diluent, or solvent is among the components of the oligomerization. At lower oligomerization temperatures, such as those associated with late transition metal catalysts, selection of diluent may contribute to prevention of wax precipitation and, therefore, affect the turbidity of reactor contents, and plugging. In embodiments, the diluent comprises aliphatics, non-aliphatics, aromatics, saturated compounds having from 4 to 8 carbon atoms, or combinations thereof. In other embodiments, the diluent comprises cyclohexane, heptane, benzene, toluene, xylene, ethylbenzene, or combinations thereof. In another embodiment, the diluent comprises an aromatic compound having from about 6 to about 30 carbon atoms. In another embodiment, the diluent comprises olefins. In another embodiment, the diluent comprises alpha olefins. In another embodiment, the diluent comprises olefins having from about 4 to about 30 carbon atoms. In another embodiment, the diluent comprises olefins having from about 4 to about 12 carbon atoms. In another embodiment, the diluent comprises olefins having from about 10 to about 30 carbon atoms. In another embodiment, the diluent comprises olefins having from about 12 to about 18 carbon atoms. In yet other embodiments, the diluent comprises 1-butene, 1-dodecene, 1-tetradecene, 1-hexadecene, 1-octadecene, or combinations thereof. In another embodiment, the diluent comprises 1-tetradecene. In another embodiment, the diluent comprises no more than about 30 weight percent of the oligomerization reactor effluent. In another embodiment, the diluent comprises no more than about 20 weight percent of the reactor effluent. In another embodiment, the diluent comprises no more than about 10 weight percent of the reactor effluent.
  • As is known in the art, coolants may be employed when operating oligomerization reactors. For example, vaporized water may be used to cool an oligomerization reactor. Accordingly, as oligomerization temperature may vary with the type of catalyst employed, so may the coolant employed to cool the reactor. In an embodiment, a coolant more volatile than water is used in cooling the continuous reactor. In another embodiment, the coolant employed comprises butane, isobutane, isopentane, or combinations thereof.
  • Reactor, or ethylene pressure may impact the product olefins of the oligomerization. In an embodiment, the distribution of product olefins in the effluent is manipulated via modifying reactor pressure. In an embodiment, where reactor pressure is modified in order to manipulate product olefin distribution, the oligomerization catalyst system includes a transition metal complex and a co-catalyst, and the co-catalyst is a tri-alkyl aluminum.
  • Further provided is a method that comprises contacting a feed comprising olefins and an oligomerization catalyst system. The feed is oligomerized in at least one continuous reactor, and an effluent comprising product olefins that have at least four carbon atoms is withdrawn from the reactor. In an embodiment, the method of oligomerization to product olefins having at least four carbon atoms is further characterized by a single pass conversion of ethylene of at least about 65 weight percent. Additionally, the product olefins from the oligomerization that have twelve carbon atoms comprise at least about 95 weight percent 1-dodecene.
  • In embodiments of the method comprising a single pass conversion of ethylene of at least about 65 weight percent, and product olefins having twelve carbon atoms that comprise at least about 95 weight percent 1-dodecene, the oligomerization catalyst system may comprise a metal complex activated by a co-catalyst where the metal complex comprises a ligand having one or more of chemical structures I-VIII, or combinations thereof. In another embodiment, the oligomerization catalyst system may comprise an S1H catalyst. In other embodiments, the oligomerization catalyst system may comprise iron, cobalt, chromium, nickel, vanadium, or combinations thereof.
  • The present application further discloses a method of oligomerizing alpha olefins where a metal complex having chemical structure VIII is contacted with a co-catalyst and a feed comprising olefins.
    Figure US20050187418A1-20050825-C00009
  • The metal complex having chemical structure VIII may be produced from a ligand having chemical structure II as provided herein. The metal complex VIII may be formed as a result of a coordination reaction between the ligand II and a metal salt. In an embodiment, the components of the metal complex of chemical structure VIII, labeled as R1-R5, W, Y, Z, M, and Xn are as follows:
      • wherein R1, R2, and R3 are each independently hydrogen, hydrocarbyl, substituted hydrocarbyl, or an inert functional group;
      • R4 and R5 are each independently hydrogen, hydrocarbyl, an inert functional group, or substituted hydrocarbyl; and
      • Y is a structural bridge, and W, Y, and Z are independently hydrogen, hydrocarbyl, an inert functional group, or substituted hydrocarbyl having from about 0 to about 30 carbon atoms.
      • wherein M1 and M2 are metal atoms that are independently selected from a group comprising cobalt, iron, chromium, and vanadium;
      • each X is an anion; and
      • n is 1, 2, or 3, so that the total number of negative charges on X is equal to the oxidation state of M1 or M2.
    EXAMPLES
  • The following examples, 1 through 3, are merely representative of aspects of the present invention and, as one skilled in the art would recognize, the present invention may be practiced without many of the aspects illustrated by the examples. Data in examples 2 and 3 that represent process components, and compositions of reaction mixtures and products were determined by gas chromatography using a standard boiling point capillary column and flame ionization detector (GC/FID).
  • Example 1
  • Several α-olefin mixtures were mixed separately with two diluents, cyclohexane and 1-tetradecene. The level of diluent in each mixture was varied between 10 and 27 percent to simulate a reactor effluent, excluding unreacted ethylene, with from 90 to 73 percent product composition, respectively. The amounts of wax in the mixtures were gradually increased such that the total amount of wax in the mixtures ranged from 10 to 15 percent. The temperatures of the mixtures were then varied from 35 to 65° C. for each mixture, in order to determine when each mixture would become a clear solution.
  • Using a typical commercial Schulz-Flory chain growth factor of K=0.7, where
    K=(moles Cn+2)/(moles Cn),
    500 g of a mixture containing 135 g of diluent (either cyclohexane or 1-tetradecene) and 365 g of α-olefins were prepared in a 1 L flask fitted with a heating mantle. A stirbar was added to the flask, which was sealed and then connected to a bubbler via a needle in order to relieve pressure. Due to the volatility of 1-butene and 1-hexene, their masses were combined with the mass of 1-octene for preparing the solutions, such that 1-octene was used to simulate the presence of 1-butene, 1-hexene and 1-octene (see Table 1). Similarly, 1-dodecene was used to represent the C10, C12, and C14 fractions, and 1-octadecene was used to represent the C16 and C18 fractions. For the waxes, C20/24, C26/28, and C30 were chosen to represent the wax products made by the catalysts of interest. In addition to these two mixtures, a third mixture was prepared in which only 50 g of 1-tetradecene diluent was used in 506 g of the mixture.
  • The three prepared mixtures, shown in columns 1-3 in Table 1, were then heated slowly with rapid stirring to determine the point at which each solution became clear. For the solution containing 73 percent product olefins and 27 percent C14 diluent, the solution became clear at 55° C. (col. 1), and when the diluent concentration was lowered to 10.3 percent (col. 3), the solution became clear at 60° C. Contrasting these results, the mixture containing cyclohexane (col. 2) did not become clear under any of the temperature conditions studied. The results would suggest that a mid-range α-olefin fraction, such as 1-tetradecene, may be a better solvent and less likely to promote reactor plugging than cyclohexane. Also, the high level of product in the effluent suggests that it may be possible to run an oligomerization of this sort at low temperatures and high conversions without causing lines to plug.
  • To test the limits of reactor composition, further experiments were performed in which the amount of wax in the reactor was artificially inflated. Columns 4, 5, and 6 in Table 1 illustrate the respective changes that were made to solutions 1, 2, and 3. In each mixture the amount of diluent and non-wax olefins was held constant, but the amount of C20+waxes was increased by about 30 percent. As expected, the cyclohexane mixture 5 was cloudy at all of the temperatures studied. However, the 26 percent diluent (col. 4) and the 10 percent diluent (col. 6) mixtures were completely clear at 40 and 45° C., respectively. For solutions 1 and 3, the “clear” point was determined by slowly raising the temperature, but for solutions 4 and 6, the point of total clarity was determined by slowly lowering an already elevated temperature. As a final incremental change, solutions 7 and 8 were prepared, in which the amount of wax in solutions 4 and 6 was increased. In the case, all of the additional wax was C30 or higher, so that the amount of higher molecular weight material could be exaggerated. With these elevated amounts of wax, the solutions were still clear at 40 and 45° C., respectively.

  • Example 2
  • Two specific iron catalysts were tested under semi-continuous operating conditions. FIG. 5 illustrates the process design for the test. 120 g of solvent was pumped into a 1.0 L reactor under inert conditions, and the reactor was then pressurized with ethylene to either 500 or 1000 psig. Next, high pressure pumps were used to quickly transfer the first hour's amounts of catalyst, which was the iron dichloride complex of either structure IX or X, and co-catalyst (TEA) to the reactor.
    Figure US20050187418A1-20050825-C00010
  • The catalyst was introduced as an anhydrous methylene chloride solution (0.1 mg/ml), and the co-catalyst was diluted in anhydrous heptane. The reaction was allowed to exotherm to the run temperature of 50° C., and this temperature was maintained by internal cooling coils in the reactor. The catalyst and co-catalyst pumps were allowed to continue running at the hourly rates shown in Table 2, and the ethylene was fed “on demand” using a pre-set regulator. The reaction was periodically sampled via the sampling port, and the data in Table 2 were generated via GC analysis. Entries 1-8 reflect data collected employing an iron catalyst formed from a ligand having chemical structure IX and FeCl2, while Entry 9 reflects data collected under similar conditions but employing an iron catalyst formed from a ligand having chemical structure X and FeCl2. The data shown for the product distributions and the product purities are from the last samples taken for each reaction, i.e. at the highest conversion level. Each reaction was run for approximately 3 hours after the reaction had exothermed to 50° C. The catalyst productivities in Table 2 are based on the total amount of product formed and the total amount of catalyst and co-catalyst fed to the reactor. The cyclohexane solvent was used as the internal standard for calculating the catalyst productivities.

  • In examining Table 2, some additional observations are noted. First, the product distribution, as expressed by the Schulz-Flory K value, was approximately 0.67-0.69 at 500 psig ethylene pressure, and reflected pressure dependence. Upon increasing the pressure to 1000 psig, the K value increased to 0.75-0.77 (compare entries 1 and 2). Also, using the data in entry 3 of Table 2, FIGS. 6, 7, and 8 were created. FIG. 6 shows that when increasing the concentration of 1-butene in the reactor, the 1-hexene quality remains near 99.3 percent at 12 percent 1-butene concentration. FIG. 7 shows that the 1-octene purity remains over 99 percent with 25 percent 1-butene and 1-hexene in the reactor. FIG. 8 illustrates how the overall paraffin content in the reactor decreases with increasing conversion and run length.
  • Example 3
  • The tests described in entry 8 of Example 2 are furthered described in Example 3. To examine the impact of ethylene conversion on product olefin quality, product olefin content was simulated utilizing 1-butene as a diluent, which is also one of the product olefins produced in the oligomerization reactor, rather than cyclohexane. See entries 3 and 8 of Table 2. Thus, 120 g of 1-butene was introduced into the reactor, followed by catalyst and cocatalyst. Ethylene was fed to the reactor by demand and the semi-continuous oligomerization experiment was performed at 500 psig of ethylene. In FIGS. 9 and 10, conversion, measured as the amount of product olefins formed, increases as the percentage of butene present decreases. In the single run oligomerization, the mass of the diluent, 1-butene, decreases from 100 percent due to ethylene oligomerization to product olefins. FIG. 9 indicates that a high 1-hexene purity was obtained in this run. The lowest 1-hexene purity point, near 50 mass percent 1-butene, is due to increased paraffin content (0.7 percent vs 0.2 percent for other points) resulting from low ethylene conversion. In FIG. 10, 1-Octene purity remains over 98 percent when running the reaction in 1-butene. As in FIG. 9, the elevated level of paraffin at low conversion artificially lowers the olefin purity. FIGS. 9 and 10, which were composed using data from the 500 psig run, may be viewed as extensions of FIGS. 6 and 7, respectively. When using 1-butene as the solvent, the product quality remains high, approaching 99 percent for 1-hexene and exceeding 98.2 percent for 1-octene.
  • While the present invention has been illustrated and described above in terms of particular apparatus and methods of use, it is apparent that, having the benefit of the teachings herein, equivalent techniques and ingredients may be substituted for those shown, and other changes can be made within the scope of the present invention as defined by the appended claims.
