Octyl Phenol Synthesis Using Natural Clays

A series of clay minerals, HB, NB and Al-PILC have been studied in the alkylation reactions of 2-octanol with phenol at 180°C, under conditions of alcohol/phenol = 1 (mole ratio) and W/F A o °= 64,27 ghmol . The selectivity of Al-PILC was 77,12% for octyl phenol and 16,5% for dioctyl phenol. Introduction The aromatic alkylation is an interesting industrial… (More)
