Abstract

Abstract The dehydrogenation of sec-butyl alcohol over a brass catalyst has been investigated in a stirred vessel reactor over the temperature range of 572 to 842°F at atmospheric pressure. The temperature range of this study extends the range of previous investigations which suggested that a dual mechanism model best characterizes the dehydrogenation from 550 to 700°F at 1 atm. It was found in the present study that a dual mechanism does appear to operate within this temperature range, and moreover that a second transition takes place at about 800°F to what is most probably the original low-temperature mechanism. Several advantages of the stirred vessel reactor are discussed.
