The reaction conditions are also optimized to reach high selectivity to desired products while inhibiting the formation of acetaldehyde and propanoic acid on the basis of the reaction mechanism.
High purity acrylic acid, propanoic acid, acetaldehyde, and other chemicals were used as calibration standards.
The major components analyzed in the liquid product include acetaldehyde, propanoic acid, acrylic acid, lactic acid, 2,3-pentanedione; minor products include acetic acid, ethanol, acetone, etc.
The molar yields versus reaction temperature for acrylic acid, propanoic acid, and acetaldehyde are shown in Figure 3.
As for propanoic acid and acetaldehyde, however, the catalysts calcinations temperatures have little effects on the correlations of molar yields versus reaction temperature.
As for acetaldehyde and propanoic acid, the yield did not increase gradually as feed concentration increased.
As contact time prolonged, decarbonylation/decarboxylation and reduction of lactic acid to form propanoic acid occur more easily, especially at elevated temperatures.
