Title:
THE TRANSPORT PROCESS IN THE CATALYTIC DEHYDROGENATION OF ETHYL ALCOHOL
Author Name:
Dr. Mohammed Abdulsalam Kassim
Abstract:
The vapour phase dehydrogenation of ethyl alcohol to acetaldehyde has been studied in an integral flow reactor in the temperature range of 300-425 oC at atmospheric pressure and W/F values ranges from 0.93 to 2.915 gm cat./gm mole feed/hr. This study has been carried out by using the integral flow reactor of diameter 18mm over ZnO-CuO/Al2O3 catalyst. The maximum conversion of ethyl alcohol, selectivity of acetaldehyde yield were 48%,85.3% and 32% respectively and the concentration of by product hydrogen was 98%.
