Theoretical elucidation of the reaction mechanism of methanol-to-olefin conversion in acidic zeolites

Abstract
The ever increasing demand for oil-based chemicals in spite of waning oil reserves calls for the development of new technologies based on alternative feedstock. Among these emerging alternatives, the methanol-to-olefin process (MTO) in acidic zeolites is one of the most promising, since methanol can be made from practically any gasifiable carbonaceous species. However, unraveling the reaction mechanism of MTO conversion has been a challenging task for over 30 years [1], from both experimental and theoretical viewpoint. This presentation will mainly focus on the theoretical contributions towards the recent elucidation of the MTO mechanism, which are strongly linked to experimental observations.
