1-Decene was prepared through olefin metathesis reaction using methyl oleate (MO) as the vegetable oil model chemistry, the conversion rate of methyl oleate and yield of 1-decene were used as evaluation indicators to explore the effect of reaction temperature, reaction time, catalyst dosage and molar ratio of substrates to MO, finally the optimal conditions were obtained by orthogonal experiment design. The results showed that the substrate eugenol and Grubbs second-generation catalyst (C2) were beneficial to the reaction system. The optimal conditions were reaction temperature 0℃, reaction time 40 min, catalyst dosage 1%, molar ratio of MO and eugenol 1:10, under these conditions the conversion rate of MO and the yield of 1-decene were 96% and 78%, respectively.

Key words: methyl oleate, olefin cross-metathesis, ruthenium-complex catalyst, α-olefin
