Shashidhara, GM and Ravindram, M and Chanda, M (1994) A simplified kinetic model for oxidative dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene over Pd-NaBr/Al2O3 catalyst. In: Chemical Engineering Communications, 129 (1). 201 -215.Full text not available from this repository.
The oxidative dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene is gaining considerable importance in recent years as a promising alternative for styrene production. This vapour phase reaction has been studied over Pd-NaBr/Al2O3 catalyst in the temperature range 623-793 K in a fixed bed reactor. Kinetic analysis of this reaction has been done using a recursion procedure developed in this work from first principles. The advantage of this method is the absence of any restriction on the conversion level as it uses an integrated rate equation. The rate of styrene formation was found to follow a linear relationship with concentration of ethylbenzene and shows a Langmuir type dependence on the concentration of oxygen.
