In this paper, the effects of catalyst combination and temperature on the preparation of C4 olefins by ethanol coupling were studied. Firstly, using Spearman correlation coefficient, it is found that there is a strong correlation between temperature and ethanol conversion and temperature and C4 olefin selectivity under most catalyst combinations. With the increase of time, the ethanol conversion showed a downward trend, and the ethylene selectivity gradually tended to be flat. The number of the experimental catalyst combination was A1 calculated by European distance method. Finally, the regression model is established by OLS, and the multiple regression model is obtained by using the method of "OLS + robust standard error". It was found that ethanol concentration had the greatest effect on ethanol conversion and temperature had the greatest effect on C4 olefin selectivity.
