Supported Iron Nanoparticles as Catalysts for Sustainable Production of Lower Olefins

Science – Lower olefins (C2 to C4) are extensively used in the chemical industry as building blocks to synthesize a wide range of products such as polymers, solvents, drugs, cosmetics, and detergents. Traditionally, lower olefins have been produced by thermal or catalytic cracking of naphtha or vacuum gas oil or from dehydrogenation of alkanes, but environmental and economic factors are currently spurring exploration of alternative routes for their production.
