The invention relates to petrochemistry, specifically to the production of special chemicals (SHV)used for covert marking of petroleum fuels, and can be applied when carrying out different types of expertise in the commercial and industrial enterprises for the purpose of detection of oil theft and counterfeit fuels, identifying channels for their implementation and identification of petroleum products in the residues of combustible materials in the investigation of arson [Nekhoroshev SV and other Identification of gasoline hydrocarbon markers. The journal analytical chemistry. 2009, v.64, No. 10, s-1039].

It is known the use of special compounds used for covert marking petroleum fuels [see article Nekhoroshev SV and other Identification and chemical labelling of substances, materials and products (review). The journal analytical chemistry. 2010, t, No. 10, s-1019]. For marking of hydrocarbon liquids is proposed to use one or more dyes of a particular class, to identify which used various spectroscopic methods of analysis (IR, Raman spectroscopy or fluorescence analysis). For marking petroleum fuels using carbonyl compounds, which can only be detected by the absorption in the Central region of the infrared spectrum. Proposed is a device for marking fuels and their subsequent Eden is ificati on specific markers, each of which is introduced into the fuel in a certain concentration. Identification determine the content of each marker using specific sensors optical type. Parameter identification using the ratio so determined concentrations. Chemical labeling of hydrocarbon fuels as markers of the additive used cyanobenzoyl and benzoylisothiocyanate at a concentration of 0.01 to 0.02 wt.%, which are then determined by the method of IR-spectroscopy [Asher W., R. Clarke, Farahat M.S. US Patent No. 09/219288(2005)].

The disadvantages of the known chemical marker are high toxicity and cost of nitrogen-containing benzene derivatives, low variability of the chemical composition, which allows for criminal purposes to copy the token. In addition, the combustion bulleted fuel forming the oxides of nitrogen, which affects the environmental performance of fuels. Spectroscopic methods of analysis of markers in the fuels perform on expensive imported equipment.

Known chemical marker based on n-alkanes C16-C26or their mixtures [Patent RU 2199574 from 27.02.2003,, MKI C10L 1/00]. Alkanes are injected directly into the composition of marked substances (fuel, paraffin, vaseline, anti-corrosion agents, cosmetics or drugs) or prepare compositions containing chemical is Archer, applied to the packaging of the product, introduced in adhesives and other components. Chemical marker corresponds to the requirements for its application:

- is strictly individual, truepowerii and unchanging during prolonged storage structure;

is defined in relatively low concentrations in the range of 1.0 to 5.0 wt.%. widespread GLC;

has no toxic properties;

- has a large number of variations of the marker, which excludes the possibility of its occurrence or coincidence;

- easily made in the laboratory and just pretending to be a serial substances, materials and products.

A feature of the proposed chemical marker is the possibility of its use for marking complex mixtures of organic compounds, such as petroleum products. Add gasoline 1·10-4% alkanes C26-C30allows to reliably distinguish the marked fuel from falsified (see Nekhoroshev SV and others in the Journal analytical chemistry. Identification of gasoline hydrocarbon markers. 2009, v.64, No. 10, s-1039).

For preparing chemical compositions token-based n-alkanes put a thin layer on the external surface of the powder particles of the silica gel from a solution of paraffin in hexane with PEFC is blowing drying the powder in a thin layer first on the air, and then in an oven at 35°C for 2 hours. Cooked medium with a chemical marker due to the high adsorption capacity of silica gel is easily masked by the color marked under preparation by physical mixing it with a tea extract. Waxes are non-polar compounds that cannot be chemically interact with polar molecules of dyes, i.e., not painted.

The disadvantages of the known chemical marker is the high cost of individual alkanes C18-C26obtained synthetically (up to 2.0 million R./kg), which prevents their widespread use in industrial production.

A method of obtaining oxidized atactic polypropylene (APP) with polar functional groups by reacting molten polypropylene with oxygen when it is bubbling in the reaction mass at a temperature of 150-250°C for 1-6 hours and air flow rate of 0.6-1.9 l/(min·kg) [Patent RU 2301812, C08F 8/06]. The method is implemented by continuous synthesis technology on a pilot installation with a capacity of 400 t/year LLC Tactica" , Tomsk. As a byproduct of low molecular weight oxidation products formed water and condensing in the cooler-separator liquid organic substances consisting of alkanes, alkenes, alcohols and ketones. Output low the molecular organic compounds depends on the reaction temperature, the time of oxidation and varies from 1.0 to 6.0% by weight of atactic polypropylene [see article Nekhoroshev V.P. et al. in the Journal of applied chemistry", 2006, t, issue 3, s-496].

Liquid low molecular weight oxidation products APT at 20°C have a light yellow color, with a density of 800 kg/m3the refractive index - 1,4485, kinematic viscosity - 13.9 mm2/s, are distilled at atmospheric pressure in the temperature range 80-310°C. the Objective of the invention is a high conspirationist application token and reduce its cost due to the use as a chemical marker polymethylsiloxane alkanes C18-C36General formula:

where n=4-10.

The problem is solved in that for obtaining chemical marker based polymethylsiloxane alkanes C18-C36the above General formula spend the first fractionation of low molecular weight oxidation products APP with a selection of the main fraction 200-305°C with subsequent catalytic Hydrotreating of impurities alkenes in the gas phase. Literature search polymethylsiloxane alkanes C18-C36used for chemical marking of fuels, showed a complete absence of the methods of obtaining these compounds in the patent and technical literature and scientific literature.

Substantially the feature differences of the proposed chemical marker from the prototype is the new structure of the token, the new method thereof of the side of low molecular weight oxidation products of APP that provides high conspirationist application token and its low cost (50,0 thousand rubles per ton). Proposed chemical marker based polymethylsiloxane alkanes C18-C36reliably identified in fuels for domestic appliances using gas-liquid chromatography (GLC) due to its unique molecular mass distribution. The proposed concentration of the marker in order to ensure reliable identification of fuels by GLC, are for diesel fuel 1.0% wt., as for gasoline and jet fuel of 0.02-0.2% by weight. The proposed token does not degrade performance fuels.

Obtaining chemical marker carried out as follows. First conduct fractionation side of low molecular weight oxidation products APT the boiling point of the compounds on the plant for distillation at atmospheric pressure. The output of the following fractions (wt.%): 80-120°C - 6,1; 120-160°C and 9.7; 160-200°C - 12,3; 200-310°C - 64,4; VAT residue is 7.5. Light fractions, peregonnaja up to 200°C, cannot be used as a chemical marker for fuels, as in the chromatograms low-intensity signals polymethylsiloxane alkanes C9-C15overlap intense signals of hydrocarbon fuels is. CBM distillation residue contains oligomers of polypropylene and it cannot be used for marking of fuels because of the risk of precipitation when stored fuel. For marking of fuels used target faction 200 to 310°C, which contains an 80.2 wt.% polymethylsiloxane alkanes C18-C36with impurities of alkenes by 16.7% and oxygen-containing compounds (alcohols, ketones, carboxylic acids and their esters) of 3.1 wt.%. For identification of compounds contained in the faction 200-310°C, held its separation on a column of silica gel. Elution was carried out successively with hexane, chloroform and a mixture of chloroform with ethanol (1:1). Solvents drove under vacuum. The composition of the obtained fractions was investigated by the methods of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, IR, NMR1H and13C-spectroscopy. NMR spectra were recorded on the instrument VARIAN VXR-400.

IR spectra were obtained on the instrument PerkinElmer Spectrum 100 half pans NaCl layer thickness of 0.1 mm, the solvent used carbon tetrachloride.

Chromato-mass-spectrometric analysis was performed on the instrument PerkinElmer Clarus 500 MS using a capillary column with a stationary phase SE-54 (L=30 m, d=0.25 mm). Programming mode thermostat temperature chromatograph: isotherm at 80°C for 3 minutes, then heating at a rate of 10°C/min to 280°C. the Temperature of ispar the indicator 250°C, the flow of carrier gas (helium) - 0.5 cm3/min. Method ionization - electron impact energy of ionizing electrons 70 eV. Based on the results of the study polymethylsiloxane alkanes C18-C36these physico-chemical methods of analysis taking into account the most likely schemes fragmentation of the molecular ions of these compounds we have determined the structure of alkanes.

As samples we used diesel fuel 3-0,05-45 (GOST 305-82), fuel for jet engines brand TC -1 (GOST 10227-86) and gasoline Regular-92 (GOST R 51105-97), produced by LLC "Gazprom pererabotka Surgut plant condensate stabilization. Marking of spent fuels added to the fuel samples are small (0.02 to 1.0% wt.) additives marking substances polymethylsiloxane alkanes With18-C36(purified fraction 200-310°C).

Marking of fuels was carried out according to the following procedure. In a sample of fuel was made minimal additives detection agents: 1.0% wt. in the sample of diesel fuel and 0.02% wt. in samples of gasoline and jet fuel. The sample is thoroughly homogenized. For the detection of markers in samples of the original and bulleted was evaporated fuel: diesel 300, gasoline and jet fuel 100 times (by volume). Evaporation was carried out on an installation for the distillation under vacuum (pressure ≤of 6.7 PA). MA the maximum heating temperature in the case of diesel fuel was 280°C, in the case of gasoline and jet fuel 200°C. After evaporation was prepared ~1% solution of the obtained materials in hexane and analyzed the samples by gas chromatography (GC).

The presence polymethylsiloxane alkanes With18-C36in marked fuel was discovered on the results of the analysis on a gas chromatograph Crystal 2000M. In the analysis of diesel fuel used capillary column with a stationary phase SE-54 (L=15 m, d=0.32 mm). Programming mode thermostat temperature chromatograph: isotherm at 70°C for 5 minutes, then heating with a rate of 4°C/min to 280°C. the temperature of the evaporator 250°C, the speed of the carrier gas (helium) - 3.0 cm3/min

In the analysis of gasoline and jet fuel used capillary column with a stationary phase ULTRA-1 (L=25m, d=0.20 mm). Programming mode thermostat temperature chromatograph: isotherm at 35°C for 2 minutes, then heated at 3°C/min to 280°C. the temperature of the evaporator 250°C, the speed of the carrier gas (helium) - 1.0 cm3/min

Chromatogram of fraction 200-310°C low molecular weight oxidation products of APP is shown in figure 1. Signals polymethylsiloxane alkanes With18-C36the most intense. On the chromatogram observed periodically recurring groups of peaks belonging alkanal and alkenes. Molecular weight alkane is in differ to 42 Amu, which indicates a random break the chain of the polymer during oxidation. The observed gomologichnosti number polymethylsiloxane alkanes is unique in the scientific literature it is not described. In the fuel oil fractions polymethylsiloxane alkanes With18-C36are not, therefore, put markers easy to spot on the chromatogram fuel composition of heavy hydrocarbons by their characteristic molecular weight distribution. Adulterated fuel is usually diluted with straight-run fraction of oil. The number of introduced chemical markers in high-quality fuel possible to calculate the degree of dilution. Impurities alkenes contained in the faction 200-310°C, degrade performance fuels: reduce thermal-oxidative stability during storage due to intensive oxidation by atmospheric oxygen; increase the acidity and concentration of actual pitches.

Cleaning alkanes With18-C36from impurities unsaturated compounds in an industrial environment is carried out on the existing schema Hydrotreating fuel fractions in the gas phase using a hydrogenating catalyst systems. In laboratory conditions, when cleaning small amounts of alkanes With18-C36(up to three liters), using the reaction of oxidative cleavage of alkenes to carboxylic what the slot and ketones strong oxidizers when heated: KMnO 4, K2Cr2O7, Na2Cr2O7. Experimentally proved that the optimum cleaning method at 100°C boiling aqueous solution of KMnO4when the weight ratio of fractions 200-310°C to KMnO4= 2,5-3,0:1,0 subsequent freezing of the organic layer at minus 20°C and separating the crystalline slurry of sediment. When cleaning bichromate sodium and potassium significantly reduced the yield of n-alkanes up to 60% and hardly separated form stable emulsions of alkanes in water.

The invention is illustrated in the examples to obtain and use chemical marker.

Example 1. Raw materials for preparation of chemical marker are side low molecular weight oxidation products of APP, which is obtained at the experimental-industrial plant LLC "Tactica" (Tomsk) at a temperature of 150-250°C. Oxidation of the polymer was carried out at air flow rate of 1.5 l/(min·kg) for 6 hours. One liter (0.8 kg) of low molecular weight oxidation products APT fractionary on the installation for the distillation at atmospheric pressure. The output of the following fractions (% wt): 80-120°C - 6,1; 120-160°C and 9.7; 160-200°C - 12,3; 200-310°C - 64,4. VAT residue is 7.5. Got 515,2 g (644 ml) target faction 200-310°C, which contains 16.7% of wt. (86,0 g) impurities alkenes and 3.1 wt.%. (16.0 g) impurities of oxygen-containing compounds [see article gaevoy LN. and other Structural-group composition of niskama the molecular products thermo-oxidative degradation of the APC. In Journal of applied chemistry. 2011, t, issue 3, s-477]. Chromatogram of fractions is shown in figure 1. The relative content polymethylsiloxane of the following alkanes (% wt.): C18H38- 6,0; C21H44- 28,3; C24H50- 34,2; C27H56- 19,0; C30H62- 8,7; C33H68- 2,7; C36H74is 1.1. The fraction Hydrotreating 200-310°C were performed in a laboratory setup flow-type fixed bed catalyst RC - 442 (alumonickelsilicate catalytic system) at a temperature of 390°C, a pressure of 4.0 MPa. The catalyst with a particle size of 0.4-0.7 mm load in the amount of 30 cm3. The volumetric rate of dispensing of the liquid fraction of 75.0 ml/h, the ratio of hydrogen:fraction = 100:1. The yield of purified fractions 200-310°C was are 507, 5 g (98.5% wt.). According to the results of the analyses of the purified fractions the relative content polymethylsiloxane alkanes has not changed, impurities alkenes and oxygenated compounds are absent. In a round bottom flask with 1000 ml (780 g) jet fuel (GOST 10227-86, grade TS-1, first grade) production Surgut condensate stabilization plant dosing syringe 0.2 ml (0.156 g) hydrotreated fraction 200-310°C polymethylsiloxane alkanes With18-C36(0,02% wt.), the solution is thoroughly mixed with a mechanical stirrer for 3 minutes. The sample labeled fuel volume of 50 ml was placed in the flask of a rotary COI is rites brand IL-1-LT heated to 80-90°C and evaporated under vacuum to 100 times by volume to 0.5 ml

Microspace selected aliquot part one stripped off the sample in a volume of 20 μl, which is transferred into the vial containing 2.0 ml of hexane, the mixture is stirred and analyzed by gas chromatograph "Crystal 2000 M". Chromatogram source and bulleted jet fuels, one stripped off 100 times shown in figure 2. Put the tokens marked with numbers that correspond polymethylsiloxane alkanal in figure 1. The signals of the markers in the source neopreno bulleted fuel TS-1 on the chromatograms are missing, which provides a latent marking of fuel. Because jet fuel is composed of lighter hydrocarbons, the peaks markers are observed at the end of the chromatogram. Introduction to fuel TS-1 less than 0.02 wt.%. markers does not provide reliable detection by the GLC. A small number of introduced chemical marker has virtually no effect on basic physical and chemical indicators of fuels. The most sensitive characteristics of the fuels are: the actual concentration of resins, oxidation resistance, thermal-oxidative stability, iodine number and acidity. These parameters depend on the presence of the marker of organic acids and alkenes. The results of determination of physico-chemical and performance bulleted fuels are given in table 1. Pokazatel the original and branded fuel coincide within the errors of determination, that confirms the possibility of using polymethylsiloxane alkanes as a chemical marker. Fuel analysis was performed in the Central laboratory Surgut condensate stabilization plant. Consider the indicators marked fuels do not go beyond the limits established by regulatory documents for each fuel type (table 1).

Example 2. Perform analogously to example 1, but the clean fractions 200-310°C from impurities unsaturated compounds is conducted in an aqueous solution of KMnO4when the weight ratio of the fraction:KMnO4= 2.5 to 1. First prepare an aqueous solution with 47.4 g KMnO4in 120 ml of H2O that is transferred into a three-neck glass reactor fitted with mechanical stirrer, thermocouple, temperature controller and heater. In the reactor pour 150 ml (120 g) fractions 200-310°C, include the stirrer reactor and heated to 100°C.

The bottom layer of an aqueous solution of a constant humming that promotes good mixing of heterogeneous phases. The reaction is carried out for 2 hours. The reaction mixture is cooled to room temperature, defend 1 hour and separated in a separating funnel the organic layer from the water. At the bottom of the flask falls dark brown precipitate MnO2. Cloudy organic layer is placed in a sealed plastic container in the freezer overnight. At the bottom of the tank rolled small Cree is of Tallaght water mixed with the products of the oxidation of alkenes (ketones and acids). The organic part is carefully decanted from the crystalline precipitate and used for marking fuel TS-1. Output fraction 200-310°C after cleaning is 100 g (125 ml) or 83% wt. The test results bulleted fuel are similar to those of example 1 in table 1. Experimentally proved, that the ratio of the fraction of 200-310°C:KMnO4cannot be greater than 3:1, so as to 4% wt. alkenes contained in the purified fraction due to the lack of an oxidant at a ratio of 3.1:1.

Example 3. Perform analogously to example 1, but mark diesel fuel 3-0,05-45 (GOST 305-82) production Surgut condensate stabilization plant hydrotreated fraction 200-310°C polymethylsiloxane alkanes C18-C36(1.0 wt.%). Chromatogram one stripped off 300 times the original and marked diesel fuel is shown in figure 3. From the comparison of the chromatograms, it follows that the samples differ markedly in composition of heavy hydrocarbons. The chromatogram of diesel fuel with additive observed intense peaks substances 4, 5, 6 and 7, which in the original chromatogram of diesel fuel no. Therefore, these substances belong to the introduced marker. Peaks marking substances are easily found on the chromatogram, and the presence of these peaks can be identified fuel related to the marked party. Marking substances are the ultimate threat is vodorodny branched structure and on the chromatogram their peaks clearly visible in the background peaks of hydrocarbons of normal structure, prevailing in the original diesel fuel. Introduction to diesel fuel less than 1.0 wt.%. marker does not provide reliable detection by the GLC. Indicators source and marked' diesel fuel does not change, which proves that the proposed use of the chemical marker (table 1).

Example 4. Perform analogously to example 2, but the clean fractions 200-310°C is carried out at a ratio faction:KMnO4= 3:1. Output fractions after treatment is 85% wt. The test results are marked diesel fuel to 1.0% by number of the marker, cleared oxidation, similar to those in example 3 in table 1. Chromatogram fuel marker coincide completely with the chromatograms in figure 1.

Example 5. Perform analogously to example 1, but mark unleaded gasoline Regular-92 (GOST 51105-97) production Surgut condensate stabilization plant hydrotreated fraction 200-310°C polymethylsiloxane alkanes C18-C36in the amount of 0.02% by weight. Chromatogram one stripped off 100 times the original and marked gasoline produced in figure 4. Chromatogram neoprene source and bulleted gasoline are the same, which confirms the increased conspirationist marking of fuels proposed markers. Peaks polymethylsiloxane alkanes with 1 to 5 are observed at the end of the chromatogram of gasoline. Exploitationindicated gasoline are shown in table 1. Introduction marker does not degrade the performance of gasoline.

Similar results labeling of gasoline obtained using 0.02 wt.% marker prepared by oxidative degradation of olefins KMnO4.

Thus, the proposed polymethylsiloxane alkanes C18-C36used as a chemical marker for petroleum fuels, reduce the cost of the marker, and reliable identification of marked fuel with high conspirationally application. Properties marked fuels are not changed.
