Abstract Reactors coupled with membrane separation, such as pervaporation, can help enhance the conversion of reactants for thermodynamically or kinetically limited reactions via selective removal of one or more product species from the reaction mixture. Esterification of lactic acid (C 3 H 6 O 3 ) and succinic acid (C 4 H 6 O 4 ) with ethanol (C 2 H 5 OH) to generate ethyl lactate (C 5 H 10 O 3 ) and diethyl succinate (C 8 H 14 O 4 ), respectively, is studied in well-mixed reactors with solid… CONTINUE READING
