The alkylation of isobutane with butene catalyzed by [Et3NH]Cl-AlCl3-CuCl ionic liquid was carried out in a continuous stirred autoclave reactor; deuterated isobutane was used as an isotope tracer to investigate the reaction mechanism of alkylation. The results indicate that the induction period of alkylation catalyzed by [Et3NH]Cl-AlCl3-CuCl is le...

The Cu-containing ionic liquids (IL), like [BMIm]Cl-1.8AlCl3-0.5CuCl and [Et3NH]Cl-1.8AlCl3/ CuAlCl4, were synthesized and characterized. The selectivity of isobutene/butene alkylation of Cu-containing IL was also investigated. The results showed that the selectivity had little relation to the acidity of Cu-containing IL. The research octane number...
