Heterogeneous Catalytic Hydrogenation


Heterogeneous Catalytic Hydrogenation is a course that covers topics such as:

  • Theory of catalysis on surfaces
  • Surfaces and metal surfaces
  • Kinetics (micro- and macrokinetics)
  • Transport steps and chemical steps in heterogeneous catalysis
  • Hydrogen sources (molecular hydrogen, hydrogen transfer agents, hydrogen solubilities)
  • Influence of variables (overview)
  • Influence of solvents
  • Hydrogenation catalysts (catalyst types, catalyst preparation, catalyst properties, catalyst activation and deactivation)
  • Influence of substrates
  • Influence of acids, bases, additives, modifiers
  • Chemical group transformations
  • Influence of reaction conditions (concentrations, temperature, agitation)
  • Tools and guidelines for selection of chemical systems, determination of basic reaction data and successful scale up from laboratory to plant
  • Reaction engineering aspects: suspension and fixed bed reactors; batch, semibatch and continuous operation modes
  • Economical aspects
  • Hydrogenation in laboratory and plant
  • Analysis of surfaces and catalysts
  • Safety aspects
  • Rules of thumb, pitfalls

Heterogeneous Catalytic Hydrogenation brings together:

  • Development and Production Chemists
  • Organic Chemists
  • Chemical Engineers
