Gas Phase oxidation with O2

Enhanced oxidation

GAS APPLICATION

Increased oxygen content can decisively improve the efficiency of oxidation reactions. The use of oxygen has the following advantages compared to pure air operation:

 

Increase in selectivity and product yield
Possible capacity increase
Lower costs for product processing
Greater flexibility in operation
MESSER SOLUTION
Pure oxygen can be used in a particularly efficient way for gas/liquid reactions. In addition to the optimal feed system, other factors, in which Messer can provide sound expert knowledge, also play a decisive role.

Applications for oxygen- or oxygen-enriched air already exist in the following industrially used processes, or they are in the development phase:

Terephthalic acid (PTA) and isophthalic acid (IPA) from p-xylene und m-xylene
Acetone and phenol from benzene and isopropylene via the Cumene-Hydroperoxide-Process
Styrene and propylene oxide from benzene and ethylene via ethylbenzene-hydroperoxide (Halcon-Process)
Cyclohexanone/Cyclohexanol (KA oil) from cyclohexane
Benzoic acid from toluene
Hydrogen peroxide via the Anthraquinone process
