Mathematical modeling of the partial oxidation of hydrocarbons in a multiple-shelf reactor for the case of methylacrolein synthesis



A numerical study of the mathematical model of a multiple-shelf reactor in which the fixed beds of a porous catalyst alternate with built-in heat exchangers is performed. The possibility of carrying out the process of methylacrolein production by the partial oxidation of isobutylene by air oxygen is shown and the optimum conditions are determined.
