Abstract

Pure paraffinic hydrocarbons and petroleum fractions (which may be aromatic-free) on vapor phase oxidation give an oxidized product useful as a co-surfactant and as a feedstock for the synthesis of sulfonates. The oxidations may be carried out in a simple tubular reactor using oxygen or air as the oxidant and nitrogen or steam as the reactor diluent and reaction-heat absorber. The reaction is non-catalytic and occurs readily at atmospheric pressure at temperatures ranging from 300 to 400 degree C. The oxidized products which are rich in cyclic ethers react readily with sulfur trioxide or oleum to give sulfonates as the principal products. Such sulfonates are effective surfactants in tertiary oil recovery.
