This webinar discusses how chemically induced emulsions improve flow but create stable emulsions which are difficult to break and separate. Polymeric surfectants such as poly(vinyl alcohol) improve emulsion properties and also be separated. Inline particle characterization provides feedback ... 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.
