Midgrade Gasoline: Gasoline having an antiknock
Fortunately, the new alternative methods of improving the antiknock
properties of petrol are now available and include the application of up-to-date technologies and chemical processing techniques in the production of petrol and the use of high octane number components (oxygenates).
In 2002, of the published patents and patent applications 57% described deposit control additives, 26% antiknock
agents, 5% combustion improvers, 5% water stabilizers in petrol, 3% antioxidants, inhibitors, stabilizers, and others (emission reducing additives, antiwear agents, de-emulsifiers, etc.
Octel is one of the world's leading producers of octane-enhancing fuel additives for leaded, antiknock
With a biological version of a premium antiknock
agent in its portfolio (methyl tert-butyl ether, or MTBE), Evonik now offers oil companies a new option for significantly increasing the biocontent of their fuels and reducing their carbon footprint.

ATHENS, Greece, June 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Specialty chemicals maker Albemarle Corporation and its partners ABB Lummus Global and Neste Oil have developed and tested a new higher performance solid acid catalyst for their leading-edge AlkyClean solid acid alkylation process, a low-risk process that can drastically improve the process safety of existing refinery processes and reduce hazards associated with transportation and handling of liquid acids used to produce alkylate, the high-octane blending component that is used to improve the antiknock
value of fuels.
Paramount among Midgley's achievements was the discovery and development of gasoline antiknock
compounds, an event that helped to lay the groundwork for unlimited automotive progress.

Higher lead antiknock
earnings contributed to the improved first quarter earnings in 1999 while the earnings for this business segment were unusually low in the first quarter 1998.
Octane number is a measurement of antiknock
performance of gasoline -- the higher the octane number, the greater the gasoline's resistance to knock, also known as pre-ignition or "ping".
