A theoretical and experimental study was conducted on the optimal steady state operation of a jacketed, tubular, liquid-phase reactor in which consecutive second-order reactions occurred in turbulent flow. To verify the proposed mathematical model, diethyl adipate was saponified with sodium hydroxide in aqueous solution. The 150 ft. long reactor jacket was divided into 5, 30 ft. sections. Hot water flow rates in the jacket sections were chosen to maximize the concentration of monoethyl adipate… Expand
