Reactors for reactions with heterogeneous catalyst 

The reactors for heterogeneous catalysis synthesis allow to realize different chemical compounds


The reactors for reactions with heterogeneous catalyst are used in many industrial processes, particularly in the petrochemical and oil&gas, where it is often necessary a heterogeneous catalysis.

The reactors for reactions with heterogeneous catalyst normally involve 2 or more phases and the catalyst and generally in the solid phase.

The reactors for heterogeneous catalytic synthesis are normally employed for:

  • poduction of NH3 and CH2OH
  • Hydrocarbon reforming reactions (platforming, hydrocracking)
  • Dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene to styrene
  • Halogenation-dehalogenation
  • Hydration-dehydration
  • alkylation
  • hydrogenation
  • oxidation
  • isomerization
  • Ethylene Epoxidation

In reactors for reactions with heterogeneous catalyst are used different types of catalysts including metals, oxides, chlorides, acids supported on polymers or oxides.

The scientific research is experimenting new applications for reactors for chemical reactions in heterogeneous catalysis also in the field of alternative fuels: an example is the study of Heterogeneous Catalysts for Biodiesel Production.
