Synthesis of 4-tert-Butyltoluene by Vapor Phase tert-Butylation of Toluene with tert-Butylalcohol over USY Zeolite
Bulletin of Chemical Reaction Engineering & Catalysis
Vapour phase tert-butylation of toluene with tert-butylalcohol was studied over ultra-stable Y zeolite (USY) catalyst. The effects of reaction temperature, toluene/TBA molar ratio and liquid space velocity on conversion of toluene and selectivity for 4-tert-butyltoluene were studied. The deactivation and regeneration of the catalyst was also investigated. The results showed that the USY zeolite catalyst offered better toluene conversion of about 30% and 4-tert-butyltoluene selectivity of aboutdoi:10.9767/bcrec.10.1.7140.1-7 fatcat:t2xkal2lojbjvaaig3ahhwrage
