Microwave-induced catalytic transformation of 2-tert-butylphenol at low temperatures

Microwave-induced catalytic transformation of 2-tert-butylphenol at low temperatures Catalytic transformation of 2-tert-butylphenol (2TBP) on a heterogeneous K10 catalyst has been studied in the temperature range from +75 to –176°C under microwave and conventional conditions. The reaction was carried out with or without solvents and the kinetic results were described using the method of initial reaction rates. Reaction rates were recorded under microwave conditions and compared to conventional ones. Transformation of 2TBP did not proceed below 0°C under conventional conditions, whereas under microwave irradiation significant initial reaction rates were observed. Relatively high initial reaction rates at low temperatures were most probably caused by superheating of catalyst particles. The superheating temperature was calculated to be between 80 and 115°C above the temperature of the bulk. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals
