Enzymes, as biocatalysts, are a suitable, environmentally friendly alternative to heavy metal industrial catalysts. The “Green Chemistry” nature of enzymes as catalysts is based on a number of characteristics. Enzymes are biodegradable and typically produced through fermentation of renewabl ... more
Characterize, Optimize and Scale-up Pressure Reactions
The presentation - Characterize, Optimize and Scale-up Pressure Reactions - focuses on the chemistry and equipment challenges faced with reactions under pressure. There are many critical design factors in characterizing and optimizing a pressure reaction and these can be determined through the use of today’s available reactor and in situ analytical technologies. Applications presented include: Mass transfer limitations in a hydrogenation of a substituted 2-cyclohexene-1-one Kinetics study of a nitrobenzene hydrogenation The combined use of pressure reactor technology and in situ analytics (FTIR) to provide real time, valuable mechanistic information that prevents accumulation of an unstable and explosive reactive intermediate is also demonstrated.
