Simultaneous Reaction-Separation in a Microchannel Reactor with the Aid of a Guideline Structure

By Salah Aljbour, Hiroshi Yamada and Tomohiko Tagawa

Abstract

Abstract—A microchannel with two inlets and two outlets was tested as a potential reactor to carry out two-phase catalytic phase transfer reaction with phase separation at the exit of the microchannel. The catalytic phase transfer reaction between benzyl chloride and sodium sulfide was chosen as a model reaction. The effect of operational time on the conversion was studied. By utilizing a multiphase parallel flow inside the microchannel reactor with the aid of a guideline structure, the catalytic phase reaction followed by phase separation could be ensured. The organic phase could be separated completely from one exit and part of the aqueous phase was separated purely and could be reused with slightly affecting the catalytic phase transfer reaction. Keywords—Green engineering, microchannel reactor, multiphase reaction, process intensification
