Modeling and Design of an Environmentally Benign Reaction Process


High-pressure carbon dioxide is attractive as an environmentally-benign replacement for organic solvents, such as benzene, in the synthesis of compounds of high chiral purity. Of particular interest here is the allylic epoxidation of trans-2-hexen-1-ol to (2R,3R)-(+)-3-propyloxiranemethanol. In the modeling and design of this reaction system, difficulties… (More)
