Abstract

Described herein are methods for producing branched alkanes and branched alkenes from the pyrolysis of radical precursors.

Claim(s)

1. A method for producing a fuel or solvent comprising a branched alkane, a branched alkene, or a combination thereof, comprising separately introducing (i) a fatty acid comprising a free fatty acid or a salt of a free fatty acid and (ii) one or more alkenes into a reactor and subsequently heating the fatty acid in the presence of the one or more alkenes at a temperature from 350° C. to 600° C. and a pressure from 130 to 2,000 psi in the reactor in the absence of any catalyst to produce the fuel or solvent.;
2. A method for producing a fuel or solvent comprising a branched alkane, a branched alkene, or a combination thereof from a fatty acid comprising a free fatty acid or the salt of a free fatty acid, comprising separating the fatty acid from a fatty acid resource, introducing the fatty acid and one or more alkenes into a reactor, and subsequently heating the fatty acid in the presence of the one or more alkenes at a temperature from 350° C. to 600° C. and a pressure from 130 to 2,000 psi in the reactor in the absence of any catalyst to produce the fuel or solvent.
