CATALYST COMPOSITION PREPARED BY VAPOR DEPOSITING ONTO A CARBON SUPPORT: Patented by Robert J. Lang, Claude C. Culross, Lonnie W. Vernon and William E. Winter on June 1, 1990. Abstract: A catalyst composition prepared by depositing a metal or metal compound onto a preformed carbon support and thereafter converting said metal or metal compounds to an oxide or sulfide having hydrogenation activity. The metal is selected from the group of metals consisting of Groups II-B, IV-B, IV-A, V-A, VI-A, VII-A and VIII-A metals of the Periodic Table of the Elements. The catalyst compositions are useful in hydroconversion and hydrotreating processes.
Conversion of coal with promoted carbon monoxide pretreatment: Patented by Stephen N. Vaughn, Michael Siskin, Alan Katritzky, Glen Brons, Steve N. Reynolds, Claude C. Culross and Dan R. Neskora on December 1, 1989. Abstract: This invention is directed to a process for pretreating coal preliminary to a primary liquefaction or hydroconversion block. In the process, a coal feed, slurried in a solvent, is reacted with carbon monoxide in the presence of a chemical promoter at an elevated temperature and pressure. The promoter enhances the depolymerization and hydrogenation of the coal during pretreatment.
FCC CATALYST COMPOSITION AND METHOD OF MAKING SAME: Patented by Claude C. Culross, Gordon F. Stuntz and William E. Winter Jr on December 1, 1990. Abstract: Disclosed is a FCC catalyst composite, and a method of making said composite comprised of an alumina-on-silica additive, an inorganic refractory oxide, and optionally a zeolite material.
FLUID CATALYTIC CRACKING USING CATALYSTS CONTAINING AN ALUMINA-ON-SILICA COMPONENT: Patented by Claude C. Culross, Gordon F. Stuntz and William E. Winter on June 1, 1990. Abstract: Disclosed is a fluid catalytic cracking process using a catalyst composite comprised of an alumina-on-silica material, an inorganic refractory oxide, and optionally a zeolite material. The alumina-on-silica material is comprised of silica particles with surface bound aluminum groups chemically bonded to the silica surface through surface oxygen atoms, which material is dispersed in a matrix of a refractory oxide.
Method for atomically dispersing catalytic metals into support materials: Patented by Stephen D. Reynolds and Claude C. Culross on December 3, 1992. Abstract: A process for the atomic dispersion of metals into support materials, preferably silica, alumina, and amorphous and zeolitic alumino-silicates. The support material is contacted with an aqueous composition of a metal carbonate, or bicarbonate. This results in the metal being atomically dispersed in the support material.
