A review on reactions of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons with the most abundant atmospheric chemical fragments: theoretical and experimental data

Posted on 28. November, 2017.

Aerosols are ubiquitous in the atmosphere and have strong effects on climate and public health due to the reactions of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) compounds in air. Over the last decade, study of the reactions of PAHs and their derivatives in the atmosphere has become key to finding an effective way to decrease the impact of this spontaneous reaction and so reduce air pollution.

Investigation Into The Kinetics Of The Esterification Of Acetic Acid With 1-Butanol In The Presence Of Alumina-Supported TPA

Posted on 31. August, 2010.

In the second study, Drs Sert and Atalay investigate the kinetics of the esterification of acetic acid with 1-butanol in the presence of alumina-supported tungstophosphoric acid (TPA). The uncatalysed reaction was shown to proceed by a second-order mechanism.

The Determination Of Adsorption And Kinetic Parameters For Butanol

Posted on 31. August, 2010.

Emine Sert and Ferhan Sami Atalay from Ege University, Chemical Engineering Department in Turkey first consider the  determination of adsorption and kinetic parameters for butanol– acetic acid esterification system catalysed by Amberlyst 15. The effects of the reaction temperature, catalyst loading, initial mole ratio of reactants, stirrer speed and particle size were studied using a batch reactor.
