1 A Study of Structured Packing for Solid Catalyzed Gas-Liquid Reactions Shaibal Roy Muthanna Al-Dahhan Muthanna Al-Dahhan CREL Annual Meeting November 15, 2001 CHEMICAL REACTION ENGINEERING LABORATORY

2 Structures of Interest Monoliths Sandwich Open Cross Flow (Static Mixer) CHEMICAL REACTION ENGINEERING LABORATORY Motivation  Larger volumetric productivity Lower pressure drop  Excellent Mass transfer properties  Higher selectivity (low axial dispersion and shorter diffusion length scales)  Ease of scale-up Structured packing for solid catalyzed gas- liquid reactions provide:

3 Research Goal Implement basket reactor for apparent kinetic studies of  -methyl styrene Develop apparent kinetic model for test reaction at gas and liquid limited regions Know the present state of art Study hydrodynamics (effect of distributor, gas holdup) using CT Develop reactor model equations to predict its overall performance Develop CFD code to study and verify hydrodynamics Develop fundamental understanding of structured packing, verify existing claims and enhance industrial confidence CHEMICAL REACTION ENGINEERING LABORATORY Investigate the structured bed performance using a test reactor

4 Catalytic impact of environmentally benign salts/ions on subcritical and supercritical water oxidation of model organic compounds Catalytic impact of environmentally benign salts/ions on subcritical and supercritical water oxidation of model organic compounds Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Department University of Kansas Master’s Thesis, July 2000 CATALYTIC SCWO Model CompoundCatalystsReferences ChlorophenolCu 2+, Mn 2+ Yang and Eckert, 1988 DichlorobenzeneV 2 O 5, MnO 2, Cr 2 O 3 Jin et al 1990, 92; Ding, 1995 AmmoniaInconel beads, MnO 2 Webley et al., 1991; Ding 1995 QuinolineZnCl 2 Li and Houser, 1992 Acetic acidCuO/ZnO, TiO2, MnO2, KMnO4 Frisch et al. 1994; Krajnc et al. 1994; Chang et al., 1993 AlcoholsCuO/ZnOKrajnc and Levec, 1994 BenzeneV 2 O 5, MnO 2, Cr 2 O 3 Ding et al., ,4-dichloro-phenol, MEK Pt(supported), TiO2Frisch et al., 1994 PhenolV 2 O 5, MnO 2, Cr 2 O 3, CuO/ZnO Ding et al., 1995; Krajnc et al Not very environmentally friendly
