Chemical reactions in supercritical carbon dioxide: from laboratory to commercial plantThis work was presented at the Green Solvents for Catalysis Meeting held in Bruchsal, Germany, 13–16th October
The application of supercritical carbon dioxide in continuous, fixed bed reactors has allowed the successful development of a variety of industrially viable synthetic transformations. The world’sExpand

The Continuous Acid-Catalyzed Dehydration of Alcohols in Supercritical Fluids: A New Approach to the Cleaner Synthesis of Acetals, Ketals, and Ethers with High Selectivity
We report a new continuous method for forming ethers, acetals and ketals using solid acid catalysts, DELOXAN ASP or AMBERLYST 15, and supercritical fluid solvents. In the case of ether formation, weExpand

Alternative housing for sows and litters: 2. Effects of a communal piglet area on pre- and post-weaning behaviour and performance
We conducted an experiment to determine how allowing piglets access to a communal area affects pre-weaning and post-weaning behaviour and performance. Litters were housed in pens with sows in cratesExpand

Continuous reactions in supercritical fluids; a cleaner, more selective synthesis of thymol in supercritical CO2
Continuous fixed-bed catalytic Friedel–Crafts alkylation of m-cresol with different alkylating agents, isopropanol (IPA) and propylene, has been carried out using supercritical CO2, scCO2, as anExpand

Continuous Asymmetric Hydrogenation in Supercritical Carbon Dioxide using an Immobilised Homogeneous Catalyst
Continuous flow supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO 2 ) has previously been shown (P. Stephenson, P. Licence, S. K. Ross, M. Poliakoff, Green Chem. 2004, 6, 521) to be a viable medium for conductingExpand

Continuous catalytic asymmetric hydrogenation in supercritical CO2
Continuous hydrogenation in supercritical fluids has been shown to be a technically viable alternative to traditional batch-wise methodologies. Clearly, the next stage of development of thisExpand

Friedel–Crafts alkylation in supercritical fluids: continuous, selective and clean
Continuous Friedel–Crafts alkylation of mesitylene, C6H3Me3, and anisole, C6H5OMe, with propene or propan-2-ol has been carried out in supercritical propene or CO2 using a heterogeneousExpand

Friedel−Crafts Alkylation of Anisole in Supercritical Carbon Dioxide: A Comparative Study of Catalysts
The Friedel−Crafts alkylation of anisole with n-propanol was carried out over five different Bronsted solid acid catalysts using supercritical carbon dioxide as the reaction medium. The reactionExpand
