Catalytic oxidation reaction of naphthalene in sulfate-disulfate fused salts mixture at 425°C: Effect of reactants composition on reaction rate

Written by sctunisie no comments

Naphthalene oxidation in molten mixture of potassium sulfate pyrosulfate at 425°C in the presence of vanadium pentoxide gives a vapour mixture of organic products containing mainly phtalic anhydride, 1,4-naphthoquinone and unreacted naphthalene. The best rates of naphthalene conversion and anhydride phtalic formation are obtained when mixture inlet is rich in naphthalene and has a long space time.
