METHYL ARYL ETHERS FROM COAL LIQUIDS AS GASOLINE EXTENDERS AND OCTANE IMPROVERS

A mixture of methyl aryl ethers derived from the phenols present in direct liquefaction coal liquids shows considerable promise as a gasoline blending agent and octane improver. The mixture of methyl aryl ethers was blended at five volume percent with a commercial, unleaded gasoline. The properties and performance of the blend in a variety of laboratory and automotive tests is reported. The tests show that the mixture of methyl aryl ethers improves gasoline octane without degrading other gasoline properties. (ERA citation 06:020450)
