Optimum conditions were found for alkylation of benzene with 3-methyl-1-butene under which the alkylate yield was 18.6% based on benzene used for the reaction and 74% based on the alkene.
2-Methyl-2-phenylbutane is formed instead of the expected 2-methyl-3-phenylbutane and 2-methyl-4-phenylbutane in the alkylation of benzene with 3-methyl-1-butene.
3-Methyl-1-butene isomerizes into 2-methyl-1-butene and 2-methyl-2-butene at 350° and a pressure of 40 atmospheres.
