Sequential Reaction-Separation in a Microchannel Reactor for Liquid–Liquid Phase Transfer Catalysis

Abstract

A microchannel reactor with guideline structure was investigated to carry out sequential reaction- separation. The catalytic reaction between benzyl chloride and sodium sulfide was demonstrated. Under parallel multiphase flow conditions, the catalytic reaction proceeded with phase separation could be ensured. The phase separation performance was enhanced by performing surface modification.
