Stoichio-kinetic modeling and optimization of chemical synthesis : Application to the aldolic condensation of furfural on acetone


The condensation reaction of furfural (F) on acetone (Ac) gives a high added value product, the 4-(2-furyl)-3-buten-2-one (FAc), used as aroma n alcohol free drinks, ice, candies, gelatines and other products of current life. This synthesis valorises the residues of sugar cane treatment since urfural is obtained by hydrolysis of sugar cane bagasse followed… (More)
