Solvent Effects in the Hydrogenation of Butan-2-one: An Experimental and Theoretical Study

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

Often when developing new reaction systems the solvent is not considered as an important design parameter. However in many cases the correct choice of solvent can significantly affect both reaction rate and selectivity. In this study, we will outline a strategy which combines measured rate data with physical property measurements and computer simulation in order to gain a more fundamental understanding of solvent effects in the liquid phase hydrogenation of butan-2-one. To our knowledge, there has been no complete study on the role of water in a mixed solvent system covering its effect on mass transfer, diffusion and reaction kinetics.
