S.S. Shih Mobil Oil Corp. U.S. 5,348,641, Sept. 20, 1994; Appl. Aug. 15, 1991 Low sulfur gasoline of relatively high octane number is produced from a catalytically cracked, sulfur-containing naphtha by hydrodesulfurization followed by treatment over an acidic catalyst, preferably an intermediate pore size zeolite such as ZSM-5. The treatment over the acidic catalyst in the second step, which is carried out in a hydrogen atmosphere that is essentially free of hydrogen sulfide and ammonia, restores the octane loss that takes place as a result of the hydrogenative treatment and results in a low sulfur gasoline product with an octane number comparable to that of the feed naphtha.

Mar. 12, 1991 Cont.-in-part of U.S. 5,231,064 A process is provided for converting feedstock hydrocarbon compounds over a catalyst composition which comprises clay and a zeolite component, al of which has been treated with a phosphorus-containing compound, for example, ammonium dihydrogen phosphate or phosphoric acid, and which is spray dried at a low pH, preferably lower than about 3. The process produces high octane gasoline and increased lower olefins, especially propylene and butylene.

Normal olefins such as n-butenes can be converted to isoolefins such as isobutylene by skeletal isomeri%ation over catalysts of boron-8 zeolites having pore sizes of 25 A and containing boron in the framework structure. The boron-8 zeolites have sufficient acidity to catalyze the skeletal isomerization of normal olefins to isoolefins. The catalysts can be used to produce isoolefins for reaction with alcohols in integrated processes to produce alkyl tertiary-alkyl ethers such as MTBE.

Dec. 2, 1992 A process for producing C, and C, branched chain olefins involves passing a feedstock containing ethene over a zeolite catalyst in a reaction chamber wherein the feedstock also contains 21 C,-C,, olefin present in the feedstock at a concentration of ~50 ~01% relative to ethene. The zeolite catalyst has a framework structure that includes a lo-member channel that is not intersected by another lo- or 12-membered channel, for example, a ZSM-23 zeolite.
