Olefins, that is molecules with a double bond between carbons (C=C, green box) are generated from an unreactive molecules of natural gases (violet box). The reaction includes a carefully chosen titanium (Ti)-based catalyst, represented by the wheel and an additive molecule, pictured on the spool. The additive helps the wheel to spin, to recycle the catalyst back to its original form, so it can be used again to facilitate another reaction. Olefins are the chemical feedstock for a variety of other chemicals, like plastics, conductive polymers, medicines, etc. This reaction can be performed at low temperatures and it is the first time that it can be done cheaply.
