Abstract

Production of alkanes from an alkyl bound to a heteroatom under controlled hydrothermal conditions at supercritical or near critical water conditions including the use of an additive. The method reduces the extent of oxidation, generates useful and recoverable products, alters product distributions, promotes product yield, and enhances reaction rates. Additives alter product distributions and neutralize or consume mineral acids.
