The methanol to olefins (MTO) process is a key step in the transition from oil-based to natural gas-, coal- or biomass-based processes for bulk chemicals. This lecture will review major catalyst property-reaction selectivity correlations for the MTO reaction as well as for the closely related methyl halide to olefins reaction.
