Abstract: Production of cyclohexyl acetate by reaction between acetic acid and cyclohexanol using ion exchange catalyst Amberlyst – 15 presented in this work. Batch experiments were carried in batch reactor using variables such as agitation speed, catalyst size, temperature, mole ratio, catalyst loading, moisture content, catalyst reusability. Simulation also carried out using ACM. Activation energy found to be 10000 J/g.mole. Reactive chromatographic reactor is also used for process intensification. Results obtained from batch and reactive chromatographic reactors were compared. More conversion obtained in reactive chromatographic reactor as compared to batch reactor.
Keywords: Acetic acid, batch reactor, cyclohexyl acetate, modeling, reactive chromatography.
