Cooligomerization of liquid products of the C9 fraction of diesel fuel pyrolysis to produce cooligomers of wide application is suggested to be carried out with silica-alumina catalysts, among which the activated bentonite clay seems to be optimal. Cooligomerization of the mixture simulating the C9 fraction composition was studied to compare the suggested heterogeneous catalytic method with other methods of cooligomers production. Different methods have been compared in terms of yield of cooligomers and their properties, namely molecular weight and its distribution, density, unsaturation and colour. The ratio of monomer units in cooligomer has been determined and the monomers conversion degrees have been calculated for different cooligomerization methods. Reasons of structure and composition differences of cooligomers obtained by different methods are suggested.
