THE AVN BLOG: Homogeneous Catalytic Carbonylation  


A client had discovered a novel carbonylation catalyst and had carried out batch reactions on a small laboratory scale. However, important questions remained regarding the potential for operating as a continuous process, such as catalyst life and the ability to separate products from the reaction mixture. AVN designed and constructed a small continuous reaction system with product recovery and catalyst solution recycling. The unit was operated continuously around the clock in multi-day campaigns to gather the required information.
