|On Demand Webinar|| Characterize, Optimize and Scale-up Pressure Reactions |
There is an increasing demand to run reactions at elevated pressure. Due to the nature of pressure chemistry, the reaction mass typically consists of multiple phases, e.g. liquid/gas or even liquid/solid/gas. As a result, the reaction is not only controlled by the usual parameters, such as temperature of the reaction mass or the concentration of the reactants, but also by parameters like gas feed, catalyst type, catalyst concentration, mixing and subsequently mass transfer. In fact, pressure chemistry is more challenging and requires robust equipment as well as control and data acquisition software.
