Abstract : This work involved (1) review of literature data, (2) acquisition of experimental data, and (3) development of a correlation diagram for relating the structure of paraffinic hydrocarbons with physical properties such as viscosity, pour point, and thermal stability. Further work involved (4) evaluation of several catalysts, (5) comparison of high and low conversion runs in the BF3-catalyzed oligomerization of 1-decene, and (6) screening synthetic procedures for preparing tetrasubstituted methanes having three equal groups and a methyl group.
