Utilization of Microcatalytic Pulse Reactors for Testing Catalysts
Department of Organic Technology, Institute of Chemical Technology, Prague
The article focuses on some aspects of using microcatalytic pulse reactors for studying kinetics of heterogeneously catalyzed reactions. A number of literature data regarding application of the reactors in heterogeneous catalysis and for estimation of kinetic parameters are summarized. In the experimental part, adaptation of a pyrolysis chromatograph to a microcatalytic reactor is described. The results of its testing on a model reaction using two types of mathematical models with non-linear regression are discussed.
